Your client portal and health record
Information about the care and services you receive, such as medical history, current conditions, treatment plan and all treatments given, including the results of all tests, procedures and therapies, is maintained in the health record.
The TCTCA account gives secure online access to limited health information in the Client Portal to a client, or a person who the client chooses (proxy). A client’s entire health record is not reproduced online in the portal. Your provider may decide which types of information to release into your portal.
When a client and his or her spouse share an account they will both have access to billing account summary information (this information is not confidential to the client).
To ensure confidentiality, please call the business office to request a separate account.
Restrictions for minors
Parents and legal guardians may request access to their minor child’s Client Portal. The amount of information the parent will be able to see depends on the age and legal status of the minor. The limits on portal or health record access does not affect any other right the parent may have to obtain a minor child’s records.
Your privacy and security responsibilities
When you sign up to use your TCTCA account, you will be given an activation code. You will use that code to create a username and password. This username and password will allow you to view your portal.
It is important that you keep your access code, username and password completely confidential and secure. You should change your password immediately if you believe that your security may have been compromised. In addition, you should change your password regularly to help keep your account secure. You can change your password online at any time. The privacy of your health information is carefully protected by your health care providers.
If you have any questions about the security of your password, please call the TCTCA office.
For all urgent medical matters, contact your physician’s office by phone, go to an emergency room, or dial 911.
You may receive email messages at the email address you provided to us. These messages will notify you of new messages in your account, but will not contain any confidential medical information. Any person with access to the email account to which these messages are sent will be able to see the notifications.
Shared electronic health records
If you gave consent to share your electronic health record with affiliated partners, you will be able to access all health information across all organizations through the health record.

In such a case the limitations and exclusions set out in these Terms and Conditions of Use shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of such applicable jurisdictions.

Third party applications
If you, as a client, find a third party application you would like to use to access and import your health information, TCTCA provides the ability for you to use this application. To do this, you must establish an Twin Cities Therapy and Counseling Associates account, since the security – user name and password – you set for your TCTCA account would be your authentication for any third party application to access and import your health information. TCTCA reserves the right to disable any third party application if needed.

Our failure at any time to require performance of any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use or to exercise any right provided for herein will not be deemed a waiver of such provision or such right. All waivers must be in writing. Unless the written waiver contains an express statement to the contrary, no waiver by TCTCA of any breach of any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use or of any right provided for herein will be construed as a waiver of any continuing or succeeding breach of such provision, a waiver of the provision itself, or a waiver of any right under these Terms and Conditions of Use.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law and the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Use will remain in full force and effect.
