What kind of information is made visible to the allied health assistants?
To ensure that we protect your privacy, when an allied health assistant is shown your profile the information is de-identified.
Here is an example of what a potential allied health assistant might see:
“9 year old female in Brighton, living with Autism Spectrum Disorder, looking for assistance twice a week with Speech Therapy.”
As you can see, therapy assistants do not see any names, addresses or contact details of you or your AHP. They are only able to view the following:
- your age, suburb and diagnoses and/or symptoms
- your therapy goals and therapy team (what types of AHPs you work with)
- your requested therapy session times
It is only after you choose an allied health assistant that they are provided with your name, contact details and home address so that they can meet with you.
