A classified entity may disclose an LDS for public health purposes, including those that are emergency prevention activities. The relevant entity must have a data use agreement in order to disclose the LDS. Where a data subject company is the recipient of a limited set of data and infringes the data use agreement, it is presumed to have infringed the data protection rule. Where the data subject undertaking providing the limited set of data is aware of a type of activity or practice of the recipient that constitutes a breach or significant breach of the data use agreement, the data subject undertaking shall take appropriate measures to correct the inappropriate activity or practice. If the steps are not successful, the covered entity must stop disclosing PHI to the recipient and notify HHS. A covered business (for example. B Stanford) may use a member of its own staff to create the « limited file ». On the other hand, the recipient can also create a « limited set of data » as long as the person or entity acts as counterparty to the covered business. « A `limited set of data` is a limited set of identifiable information for patients within the meaning of the data protection rules adopted under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, better known as `HIPC`. A « limited set » of information may be passed on to an external party without a patient`s permission if certain conditions are met.
First, the purpose of disclosure should only be for research, health or health operations. Second, the person receiving the information must sign a data use agreement with Hopkins. This agreement has specific requirements, which are explained below. A restricted record is a set of data that is exempt from certain direct identifiers specified in the HIPC confidentiality rule. A limited set of data may only be transmitted to an external party without a patient`s permission if the purpose of the disclosure is for research, public health or public health purposes and if the person or organisation receiving the information signs a Data Use Agreement (DUA) with the relevant entity or its counterparty. A « limited record » is information from which the « face » identifiers have been removed. Especially with regard to the person or their relatives, employers or household members, all of the following identifiers must be removed for health information to be a « limited data set »: the following page contains useful information about people who process different types of DUAs and other internal agreements at Stanford: ico.sites.stanford.edu/who-will-handle-my-agreement under HIPAA, a limited data set must not contain the following information: Rmations: The « limited data set » provisions also require that affected companies take appropriate action to remedy a breach by a recipient of the data use agreement. In other words, if Hopkins discovers that the data provided to a recipient is being used in a way that is not authorized by the agreement, Hopkins must work with the recipient to resolve this issue.
If these steps are not successful, Hopkins should stop disclosing PHI to the recipient as part of the Data Use Agreement and report the situation to the JH Privacy Office at 410-614-9900 or email@example.com. . . .
