Getting your health information is getting easier.
Starting this year, you will be able to get records from your coordinated care organization, Yamhill Community Care, through an app on your phone, computer or other device.
These records may include information about:
- Health care services and their costs
- Clinical data, such as medications
- Providers you have seen: Their name, specialty and contact information
As a member of YCCO you now have direct access to your health information through our partnership with Change Healthcare.
With your consent, your personal health information can be shared with 3rd party applications (apps) that you desire.
How do I sign up?
To sign up, you must first call YCCO’s Customer Service at (855) 722-8205 and get your unique invitation code. After you get your code, you may sign up in one of two ways:

Before you sign up, make sure to read the important information below about health information privacy and safety.
Is my information safe and private?
It is important to know that while Change Healthcare Connected allows you to share important health information with the click of a button, it also connects your health information to 3rd party apps.
3rd party apps are not required to follow the same State and Federal rules that we do as a Coordinated Care Organization (CCO).
How to keep your information safe with 3rd party apps
- What health data will this app collect?
- Will this app collect non-health data from my device, such as my location?
- How will this app store my data? Will it also use my personal information such as name and date of birth? Will my data be anonymous?
- How will this app use my data?
- Will this app sell my data for any reason, such as advertising or research?
- Will this app share my data for any reason? If so, who will get my data, and why?
- Can I limit how this app uses and shares my data? If so, how?
- How will this app protect my data and keep it secure?
- If I use this app for my health data, would it affect others, such as my family members?
- Can I view and correct data collected this app? If so, how?
- Can I send complaints about the app? If so, how? Does the app developer respond to complaints?
- If I want the app to stop accessing my data, can I stop it? If so, how?
- If I stop access, will the app delete my data?
- If I want to delete the app, how do I make sure my data is also deleted?
- Does the app notify users about changes to the app? If so, do the notices include changes that could affect the app’s privacy or security?
Health information is very sensitive information, and you should be careful to choose apps with strong privacy and security standards to protect it.

How to make a complaint about shared health information
If your health information was shared without your permission, you have the right to make a complaint. But first, ask these questions.
Is the business required to protect my health information?
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services website lists who is and isn’t required to protect your health information.
- Who is required? Health care providers, health plans, and other businesses who support health care treatment, payment and operations for providers and plans.
- Who is not required? Businesses that do not manage health care, such as employers, life insurers, schools, law enforcement agencies, and state/local government agencies that do not provide health care services or coverage. Most third-party apps will not be covered by HIPAA.
Is the business a provider, clinic, health plan or other medical organization?
The Oregon Health Authority and health plans each have their own Notice of Privacy Practices that explains how they will use your health information.
If you don’t agree with how your information was shared, you can file a complaint with the federal Office of Civil Rights:
If you feel your health care information was shared in error, file a health information protection complaint with OCR.
Is the business a third-party app, website, or other business?
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) investigates online security violations, fraud, and bad business practices.
