Identity Verification and Data Protection

To protect the information in your provider profile displayed on Healthgrades.com, Healthgrades has the following security measures in place.

Misrepresenting yourself as a physician violates federal statutes and laws in all 50 states. Only a physician or an authorized representative of a physician are allowed to manage a provider's profile on Healthgrades.com. Violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Identity Verification

Healthgrades ensures that only you, or your authorized representative, can modify your provider profile.

  • When you initially register for a Healthgrades account, the process requires you to provide certain identifying information that we verify before we allow you to update your profile or to authorize a representative.
  • When an individual registers for an account and indicates he/she works on your behalf, the registration process requires him/her to request authorization from you and you must grant that request before we allow the individual to update your profile.

Data Protection

We have the following in place to protect your data:

  • We use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption to protect your data. SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a web browser. The encrypted link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
  • We have security procedures that monitor your data for abnormalities that might indicate wrongdoing.
