Why we collect this information
You do not have to provide the information requested by Proactive, but doing so will help Proactive and affiliates provide an effective and efficient service to you.
The main purpose we collect this information is for your care and treatment, but there are other related purposes such as: to assist in administrative aspects of your care; in training and education; in monitoring of the quality of client care; and in research and outcome measurement.
Your information may appear on a private online portal between you and your physiotherapist or Proactive health provider. The portal is safe and secure and only password accessible. The purpose of the portal is for the sharing of educational resources, medication information and messaging between you and your provider and Proactive. This portal has been designed to aide you in storing and controlling your personal information and programmes provided to you by your providers. This is to enable you to be fully engaged and be an active member of your rehabilitation.
If you would like any of this explained further, please contact a member of staff.
