  Protecting Personal Health Information in Research: Understanding the HIPAA Privacy Rule
Subjects:  Federal Government/Agencies  |  Health Policy  |  Legislation/Regulations

This 37-page booklet provides researchers with a basic understanding of the Privacy Rule and how it may affect health research. It also addresses how researchers may be directly or indirectly affected by the Rule when their research requires the use of or access to an individual's identifiable health information. The Privacy Rule (also known as Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information) is in Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 160 and Subparts A and E of Part 164. The full text of the Privacy Rule can be found at the HIPAA Privacy Web site of the Office for Civil Rights (OCR).
