policy 0084 : Health Information Request for Non-Patient Care Usage

Health Information Services (HIS) is responsible for approval of all requests to gain access to patient-specific medical records and documentation and/or aggregate patient data for use in non-patient care activities. Non-patient care usage involves the use of patient-specific health information for purposes unrelated to a specific patient's clinical treatment. This includes but is not limited to, clinical studies and research, quality/utilization reviews, billing and coding reviews, and clinical guideline development. Record requests for these activites are subject to the approval of the Administrator of Health Information Services,or his/her designee, and the availability of resources to retrieve lists of records for specific patient populations. Medical Center employees who directly access patient-specific electronic medical records for internal operational purposes, such as quality/utilization reviews or clinical guidelines development, are responsible for doing so within the limits of their approved access authority.
