The Sheriff’s Department calls our hospital from time to time asking if a certain person has been in our emergency room. Last week they called and asked if a certain person shows up in the emergency room to call them (the person had not committed a crime). I advised hospital personnel not to give out any patient information…am I wrong?

Encrypted e-mail

I have a question regarding HIPAA requirements for encrypted e-mail.  Our organization is considering utilizing encrypted e-mail for our peer review process.  Is there a regulation in HIPAA that registration is required if patient info is being sent out electronically?  If so, who would one register with? One person in our organization had a recollection of this, but I’m uncertain where to locate the information.

Thank you very much for your time,

I had heard that it is now required for EP’s to have Privacy/HIPAA forms signed once a year now, but can’t find the answer.

Is there a HIPAA policy that addresses the procedure for notification of a breach of PHI to the entity whose PHI was disclosed inadvertently to another patient?

If so where or what is that policy identifier found in the regulations
