Privacy Rule

The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes a set of national standards to protect the privacy of certain health information that can be linked to a specific person. These standards address the use and disclosure of individuals' health information—called "protected health information," or PHI­—by organizations subject to the Privacy Rule, called "covered entities." The Privacy Rule also gives patients certain rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, and to request corrections.
