HIPAA sets rules about who can look at and receive your health information. This law gives you rights over your health information and when it can be shared. It also requires your doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers, and your health plan to explain your rights and how your health information can be used or shared.
HIPAA required the Secretary of the U.S.Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop regulations protecting the privacy and security of certain health information. To fulfill this requirement, HHS published what are commonly known as the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the HIPAA Security Rule.
If you have specific questions or concerns about the privacy and security of your health information at the University of Miami, please contact the Office of HIPAA Privacy & Security.
