Limited Data Set


Effective Date: March 2019



Policy Statement


When appropriate and feasible, a Limited Data Set shall be used, disclosed, or requested by the Columbia University Healthcare Component (CUHC) rather than a completely identifiable data set of Protected Health Information (PHI), consistent with university and legal requirements, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).



Reason(s) for the Policy


CUHC is committed to protecting patient privacy as mandated by applicable city, state, and federal laws and regulations and must comply with legal obligations, including HIPAA, CUHC policies, and minimum necessary requirements.
