The HealthTools™ assessment is an educational tool made available to you at no charge. It is designed for adults 18 years and older living in the United States. It was developed using current national standard guidelines.
Your participation in completing the HealthTools assessment is voluntary and you may exit the HealthTools assessment at any time. The HealthTools assessment is for personal use only. It is not intended to diagnose, treat or prevent medical or other health conditions. If you have a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.
The HealthTools assessment questionnaire is a series of questions about important personal health behaviors that can put you at increased risk for injury, illness and disease. It identifies your specific modifiable health risks and suggests simple actions you can take to maintain or improve your current and future health. It does not cover all of the health risks that could be of concern to you, especially if you are pregnant or have a serious health problem.
The Health Risk Assessment is not a substitute for information given to you by a licensed healthcare provider, nor is it a substitute for a medical exam. If you have any concerns about your health or if the Health Risk Assessment raises any questions consult a licensed healthcare professional. Always consult a licensed healthcare professional for diagnosis and treatment of any medical condition or before starting a diet or exercise program.
The HealthTools assessment is strictly voluntary. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) ensures that the security and privacy of your personal health information remains confidential. The HealthTools assessment is compliant with Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008. When questions about family medical history are included, you will not be required to answer those questions in order to complete the HealthTools assessment.
A personalized summary of the results and recommendations based on your responses to the HealthTools assessment questionnaire will be ready for you within minutes after completing the questionnaire. Your personalized summary will be displayed on a webpage within the HealthTools assessment and you may choose to use the “email my report” function from the results page send a copy of your personalized summary to an email address that you provide. The webpage displaying your personalized summary will expire when you close your web browser and will not be retrievable via HealthTools assessment. Please note, if you do not close your web browser, your personalized summary may be accessible by a subsequent user utilizing the web browser’s “back” button.
Section 2 – Disclaimer Review and Approval

Updated as of June 13, 2016
We collect certain information from and about our users in three ways:
When you access or use our Services, we may track information to administer our Services and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:
We use this information to analyze trends, administer and improve our Services, and monitor traffic and usage patterns for information security purposes and to help make our Services more useful.
A “cookie” is a small text file that may be transferred to your computer's hard drive in order to personalize our services for you and to collect aggregate, non-personal information regarding usage of our Services by all of our users. Each computer is assigned a different cookie that contains a random, unique number. The cookie does not contain personally identifiable information. Our Services uses two different types of cookies: a “session” cookie, which is required to track a user session, for example, and which expires shortly after the session ends), and a “persistent” cookie, used to track unique visits to the Portal (defined below), as well as how the user arrived at the Portal (for example, through an email link or from a referral link), and the type of user (patient, provider, etc.). So that users are not counted twice, this cookie can “persist” anywhere from six months to two years.
Your browser software can be set to warn you of cookies or reject all cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookie, this may disable some of the functionality of our Services and you may not be able to use certain services.
Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a website, a cookie helps the website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases website navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
A “web beacon,” “clear GIF,” “web bug,” or “pixel tag” is a tiny graphic file with a unique identifier that is similar in function to a cookie, but would allow us to count the number of users that have visited certain pages or screens of our websites, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which may be stored on your computer's hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on pages or screens.
We reserve the right to share aggregated site statistics monitored by cookies and web beacons with our affiliates and partner companies.
Email communications that you send to us via the email links on our Services may be shared with a customer service representative, employee, medical expert or agent that is most able to address your inquiry. We make every effort to respond in a timely fashion once communications are received. Once we have responded to your communication, it is discarded or archived, depending on the nature of the inquiry.
The email functionality on our Services does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. It is possible that your email communication may be accessed or viewed by another Internet user while in transit to us. If you wish to keep your communication private, do not use our email.
We may send certain messages, including electronic newsletters, notification of account statuses, and marketing communications on a periodic basis. If you wish to be removed from such messages, you may request to discontinue future ones. All such material will have information as to how to opt-out of receiving it, although certain messages (such as a secure message sent by a doctor or an account status update), may be required and will not have opt-out capabilities.
We may allow third party advertising companies to serve ads when you access or use our Services. These companies use non-personally identifiable information regarding your access and use of our Services and other websites, such as the user IP address, pages viewed, date and time of your visit, and number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), to serve ads to you on our Services and other websites that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements to our Services, our third party advertiser may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. In addition, we may use clear GIFs or pixel tags to help manage our online advertising. These clear GIFs enable our ad serving company to recognize a browser's cookie when a browser visits our Services. This allows us to learn which banner ads bring users to our Services. The information we collect and share through this technology is not personally identifiable.
As a service to its customers, we may also provide Portals to offer some customers secure, private access to their own records at our facilities, as well as certain internet-based services which may include, among other things, assistance in finding a doctor, assistance in scheduling appointments, the ability to register for classes and pre-register for procedures, making payment for medical services rendered, and health and patient education materials (“Portal”). If you use any of our Services that include a Portal, the following additional privacy terms and protections apply.
Our Services may include pages that give you the opportunity to provide us with personal identifying information (“PII”) about yourself. If you choose not to provide this information, it may limit your ability to use certain functions of the site and/or request certain services or information. The Portal can provide you with access to some of your medical records. When you seek access to those records on the Portal, we need to confirm it is you so we ask you for information such as your name and email or physical address and other information such as your date of birth (which we may also use to make sure you are eligible to use the Portal in accordance with the Terms) and the answers to “secret questions” to which only you know the answers. This information may be used to help administer your user account and in managing your account. We may need to ask you for the information again when you sign in from a new device.
We may ask for information about your location and medical needs to assist with finding a physician, and may collect and pass on information to assist you in scheduling appointments, registering for classes and pre-registering for procedures.
In collecting your PII, our Services may also collect PHI. Just as we strive to protect your PII we are committed to protecting your PHI. If there is a breach of your PHI, we are required by law to notify you. Your PHI will remain confidential, and will only be disclosed to you or your personal representative, unless otherwise required by state or federal law. In all circumstances, unless otherwise required by law, we will obtain your written authorization before using or disclosing your PHI. This protection extends to PHI that is oral, written, or electronic.
In addition to the uses and disclosures of information outlined above, your information may also be used and disclosed as follows:
In order to protect your privacy, you should:
Please note that if you share your Portal username and password with another person, this will allow that person to see your confidential medical record information. We have no responsibility concerning any breach of your confidential medical record information due to your sharing or losing your user name or password.
We will never ask for or knowingly collect information from children, if you are a child under the age of 13, you are not permitted to use this service and should immediately exit our Services or get an adult. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. Parents of un-emancipated minors may set up accounts for themselves to access their children’s medical records only as permitted pursuant to the Terms governing the Portal. If you think that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 through this Portal, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will dispose of the information.
If collected, we will take reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality of Social Security numbers and limit access to those with a need for such information. We prohibit the unlawful disclosure of Social Security numbers.
Under California Law, California residents have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship, (a) a list of the categories of personal information, such as name, e-mail and mailing address and the type of services provided to the customer, that a business has disclosed to third parties (including affiliates that are separate legal entities) during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes; and (b) the names and addresses of all such third parties. To request the above information, please contact us at email@example.com with a reference to California Disclosure Information.
We will endeavor to respond to such requests to information access within 30 days following receipt at the e-mail address stated above. If we receive your request at a different e-mail address, we will respond within a reasonable period of time, but not to exceed 150 days from the date received. Please note that we are only required to respond to each customer once per calendar year.
The information and advice published or made available through this web site is not intended to replace the services of a physician, nor does it constitute a doctor-patient relationship. Information on this web site is provided for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice.
We encourage your comments on HCA Healthcare's various blogs, and hope you will join the discussions. We can't respond to every comment, particularly those that deal with individual medical cases and issues. We review comments before they're posted, and those that are off-topic or clearly promoting a commercial product generally won't make the cut. We also expect a basic level of civility; disagreements are fine, but mutual respect is a must, and profanity or abusive language are out-of-bounds.
That's the plain English version. Here it is in legal language:
By posting any comments, posts or other material on HCA Healthcare-sponsored blogs, you give HCA Healthcare ("HCA Healthcare") the irrevocable right to reproduce, distribute, publish, display, edit, modify, create derivative works from, and otherwise use your submission for any purpose in any form and on any media.
