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.
