Privacy Policy for Lyrebird HealthTM

Privacy Policy

Last updated: February 29, 2024
This Privacy Policy includes important information about how Lyrebird Health handles Personal Data and we encourage you to read it carefully.

1. Introduction

Subsidio Pty Ltd (“Lyrebird Health, we, us or our”) understands the importance of protecting an individual’s rights to privacy. This policy applies to our Lyrebird Health service [“Lyrebird  Health” or “Lyrebird Health service”]. It explains how we handle, use and protect the privacy of Personal Data obtained in association with our Lyrebird Health service.

2. About the Lyrebird Health service

Healthcare practitioners engage us to provide our Lyrebird Health service. Our Lyrebird Health Scribe and services help to reduce the administrative burden on healthcare professionals that accompanies every client consultation.  

Our Lyrebird Health Scribe transcribes your whole client consultation and produces a near perfect summary of your client consultation in a format ready for you to insert into your own client e-file or management system. This is all done within a few minutes of your client consultation ending. 

3. Information collection and use 

a) How Lyrebird Health manages personal data of the health-care practitioner  

Your “Personal Data” held by Lyrebird Health is your contact email address, mobile number, full name and your Clinic details. It may also include information you provide to us through our direct contact with you, through customer surveys, or through your use of our website. 

We may use your de-identified Personal Data in aggregate form to conduct analysis on how our website and services are being used to help us improve our services. 

This information is stored on our database in servers that are located within Australian borders. Our database content is protected with encryption during transit and at rest, which means that only authorised users can access this data.  

If and when you delete your account with us, or where your account is dormant for 12 months, then all Personal Data associated with your account is destroyed within a 12 month period.  

Lyrebird Health subscription payments are outsourced to the Stripe Payment System, a process to which you will need to agree during the payment process. Lyrebird Health does not hold your payment information. Stripe is a well-known and internationally reputable organisation, with Terms of Service and a Privacy Policy that clearly set out how Stripe manages and protects your Personal Data.  

b) How Lyrebird Health manages your client’s Personal Data  

Our Lyrebird Health Scribe captures your whole client consultation from the time you press the record button until you end it. All consultation audio is transcribed in real time. By the time you  have finalised your client consultation all audio has already been transformed into text and the audio file is destroyed. This process takes place on Lyrebird Health servers in Australia.

Unless you save your notes within Lyrebird, they will be automatically deleted from the platform. If you choose to save your notes within the Lyrebird Health platform, they will be stored in our Australian database fully encrypted for 7 days after which time they are destroyed. This 7-day window is designed to give you time to access and transfer your Lyrebird Health Patient Notes to your own computer device or management system. It means that after this 7-day window your Lyrebird Health Patient Notes no longer remain with Lyrebird Health and you can no longer access them. You may choose to have your Lyrebird Health Patient Notes stored for any time up to 6 months if you select this option in your settings. 

c) Your responsibility to your clients 

Once on your own device or management system, responsibility for the security of your Lyrebird Health Patient Notes sits entirely with you. 

You are also required to collect, hold, and use your Client’s Personal Data in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and any relevant State legislation. This includes you obtaining the required written consent from your client before using the Lyrebird Health service with your client. You must ensure that the required written consent is obtained and securely stored as evidence of your compliance with relevant privacy and health records legislation.
