What is HIPPA

Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996
  • Privacy Rule, April 2003
    • Regulates the use and disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI)
    • PHI is any information that can be used separately or in conjunction with other information to identify and individual
    • Unattended PHI is a possible breach and must be reported
My responsibility

ALL students are expected and required to safeguard ALL patient information in ALL settings, whether you are at the college, in clincials, or home. And, simply leaving out the patient name does not guarantee that person's privacy.


What about Social Media

  • Technology can be a benefit or a risk depending on how we use it
  • Just because you do not list a patient name, address, phone #, DOB, etc., on a social network is no guarantee the individual cannot be identified by the information provided
  • Best practice = let social media be about your social life
  • Refer to the Social Media section of the Student Handbook for guidance.
