RE: [Histonet] HIPAA question re: research

From:"Bonnie J. McMahill"

>From what I understand, HIPAA allows for research as long as the process goes through a IRB process that explains how PHI is to be used and protected, if the patient's consent is needed, etc.  I have just gone through this process with a local university on a research project that I am going through.  Most institutions are also disclosing in their patient disclaimers that patient information and/or material may be used for research purposes.  I have an agreement with the institutions who are providing tissue and patient information on how I am protecting the PHI.
