PHI and Education Purposes
Are there any guidelines that must be followed when using PHI externally for education purposes – national educational meetings or publications?
Individuals should not use PHI for external educational meetings/presentations, case studies, articles, industry conferences/lectures, posters, fliers, or media purposes without first obtaining the patient’s written authorization allowing UCLA to use and disclose his/her PHI for the specific purpose. The signed authorization should be placed in the patient’s legal medical record maintained by the HIMS Department. Please notify the Privacy and Information Security Offices at 310-794-8638 or PrivacyInfoSec@mednet.ucla.edu for assistance.
