45 CFR 46 (“Common Rule”)

HIPAA

The HIPAA Privacy Rule is a federal law that generally prohibits health care providers (such as physicians or other health care practitioners, hospitals, nursing facilities, and clinics) from using or disclosing protected health information without written authorization from patients. Investigators intending to use or release any identifiable health information to others (e.g., sponsors, other investigators, collaborators) in connection with the research must indicate this in the IRB application.

PHI is health information transmitted or maintained in any form or medium that includes ALL of the three following characteristics:

  • Identifies or could be used to identify an individual
  • Is created or received by a healthcare provider, health plan, or healthcare clearinghouse
  • Relates to the past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition of an individual; the provision of healthcare to an individual; or the past, present, or future payment for the provision of healthcare to an individual.
