HIPAA Regulations

by tdesartor In reply to HIPAA isn't just for heal ...

I work in an educational institution and we have been sending warnings to all subscribers reminding them that releasing medical information ("We wish Jane Doe a speedy recovery from her foot surgery") is not allowed under these regulations. It is difficult to have our small family atmosphere and at the same time protect privacy. It is hard to figure out language to use that would block this type of post on our school's outlook, so far we are just monitoring and sending personal warnings to anyone posting this type of message.
