Question and answer
five reasons why patients may need to schedule an appointment
Scheduling an appointment is very important. Follow-up care is important because it helps to identify changes in health. [ The purpose of follow-up care is to check for recurrence (the return of cancer in the primary site) or metastasis (the spread of cancer to another part of the body). Follow-up care visits are also important to help in the prevention or early detection of other types of
cancer, address ongoing problems due to cancer or its treatment, and check for physical and psychosocial effects that may develop months to years after treatment ends. All cancer survivors should have follow-up care. ]

Weegy: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) contains provisions to protect the confidentiality and security of personally-identifiable information that arises in the course of providing health care.
