RE: [Histonet] HIPPA rules

From:Luis Chiriboga

ya......if you do with out approval, you go to jail (sorry couldn't resist
Not sure about sending slides out for consult but for research purposes,
there's "supposed" to be IRB approval between the institutions.  However,
the details of whether your sending slides vs. blocks still hazy.
Your best bet is to check with your institution and the institution your
collaborating with.

Get ready for a lot of red tape.....good luck

Subject: [Histonet] HIPPA rules

	Hi all,

	Does anyone have any rules/regulations and or any policy/procedures
that they can share with me as far as sending pathology 	slides and
blocks out to other area hospitals for consult, research, etc?   This has
been on-going for us ever since HIPPA has 	come into affect.  Thanks in
advance for your help......
