Protected Health Information (PHI)

Our Registry collects and utilizes data derived from information submitted by physicians, hospitals, and manufacturers related to joint replacements. Some of this data will qualify as protected health information (PHI) under the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy and Security rules. Since many of our participants ask for clarification as it pertains to this, we’ve included our HIPAA compliance strategy. It also addresses the applicability of the Common Rule.
