There are a few situations where some of your personal information may not follow you, going beyond the "circle of care" of your care providers, or does not go exactly where it should be going. This is when some of the information is not understood correctly. An example: I am treated at the Emergency Department. I am asked where I get my health care. I reply that I go to the Northwest Clinic when I meant to say NorWest Clinic. Another example: I am requesting my medical records to be faxed and provide an incorrect fax number, or if I forget I have changed pharmacies and my prescription is faxed to my old pharmacy.
