Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
Protected health information (PHI) is regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) among other regulations. PHI is found in more places than just the Student Health Center, but in offices such as Athletics, Student Disability Services, and the Counseling Center. The security office within ITS-NS works with all offices on campus that access or store PHI. Together, we protect the confidentiality of PHI and meet the requirements of HIPAA and other privacy and health regulations.
This process will be looked at throughout the school year.
