The Ohio State President’s Cabinet approved a new Protected Health Information (PHI) and HIPAA Policy. The policy unifies current PHI and HIPAA efforts in departments and programs across the university and the medical center, as well as builds efficiencies and increases compliance. If patient confidentiality is compromised, it must be promptly reported. More details about the policy, including FAQs and diagrams can be found below.
Thank you for your commitment to always protecting patient privacy.
