What do we do with the data?

Once your sponsoring institution registers a new user, an automatic username and password is generated for each registered user. This provides access to MyEvaluations.com services.

We register information on individual log-ins, in order to verify that a user has logged into the system to complete an evaluation, submit duty-hours, procedures or patient logging.

We receive and store evaluation information and responses to evaluation questions. Some of the evaluation information we collect (e.g. resident-of-attending or nurse-of-resident evaluations) is anonymous, while some of the evaluation information we collect (such as attending-of-resident or resident-of-student evaluations) is not anonymous.
