The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued the Privacy Rule to implement the requirement of the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The OSU Center for Health Sciences is required to be compliant with the HIPAA privacy regulations. 


A major goal of the Privacy Rule is to assure that individuals’ health information is properly protected while allowing the flow of health information needed to provide and promote high quality health care and to protect the public's health and well being. The Privacy Regulations establish national standards regarding uses and disclosures of protected health information.
