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.
