HIPAA Privacy and the Coronavirus
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at the U.S. and Human Services (HHS) posted a bulletin to provide notice related to sharing patient information under the HIPAA Privacy Rule due to the outbreak of infectious disease or other emergency situation. HIPAA Privacy Rule protections are not set aside during an emergency. For further information, the US Department of Health and Human Services has issued a bulletin on HIPAA and the novel coronavirus.
