1. What is the Notice of Privacy Practices?
The University's Notice of Privacy Practices summarizes all of the ways in which the University might use a patient's Protected Health Information and informs patients of their rights with respect to the Protected Health Information.
The University's Notice of Privacy Practices is available here as a PDF file.
University Health Care Components must make the Notice available to any person who requests it. Health care providers with direct treatment relationships with patients must provide the Notice to each patient no later than the date of the first service delivery. The Notice must also be available at the service delivery site and it must be posted in a clear and prominent location at the delivery site. Finally, the Notice, or a link to it, must be posted on each Health Care Component's web page,
University personnel must make a good faith effort to obtain a written Acknowledgement from the patient of his/her receipt of the Notice. The Acknowledgement, available on the HIPAA Forms page, must be maintained in the medical record.
