Our Privacy Policy

Last Updated: November 3, 2023

DexCare acts solely as a technology platform to provide you with our Services (as defined below), including connecting you with health care professionals and physicians.

This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how DexCare, Inc. (“DexCare”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) collects, uses, processes, and shares your personal information, and to help you understand and exercise your privacy rights. If you need to access this Policy in an alternative format due to having a disability, please contact us at or (206) 552-0844.

Notice at Collection. At or before the time of collection, you may have a right to receive notice of our privacy practices. Please use the embedded links to understand what the categories of personal information we collected, the purposes for which such personal information is collected or used, whether such information is “sold” or “shared” and how to opt-out of such uses, and how long such information is retained.

Supplemental Privacy Notices. DexCare may provide additional privacy notices to individuals at the time we collect their personal information. For example, we may provide a specific privacy notice to participants that describes our privacy practices in connection with health information. These additional privacy notices may supplement this Privacy Policy or may apply in lieu of this Privacy Policy.

Notice Regarding Patient Protected Health Information. In some cases, physicians and other licensed professionals who are registered with DexCare and utilize DexCare Services (as defined below) to deliver in-person care and telehealth services (each a “Clinician”) and/or professional practices (each a “Practice”) may use our DexCare Services to treat or otherwise interact with patients (each a “Patient”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to any protected health information about Patients that is subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and its implementing regulations (“HIPAA”) that we process solely on behalf of Clinicians and/or Practices pursuant to a business associate agreement (“Patient PHI”). The Clinicians’ and/or Practices’ respective notice of privacy practices govern their collection and use of this Patient PHI. Our processing of this Patient PHI is governed by the business associate agreements that we have in place with the Clinicians, Vendors and/or Practices, not this Privacy Policy. Any questions or requests relating to Patient PHI should be directed to the relevant Clinician and/or Practice.

Note that if a Patient asks us to process their Patient PHI outside the scope of their relationship with a specific Clinician and/or Practice, this information may be subject to our Privacy Policy or other supplemental privacy notices we may deliver.
