Can I access my family member’s, friend’s, or co-worker’s PHI (e.g. electronic, written)?
Employees must NOT access either through our information systems (e.g. ADT, CView, Essentris, Medhost, PCIMS, etc.) or the patient’s paper medical record the medical and/or demographic information of family members, friends, or other individuals for personal or other non-work related purposes, even if the patient has verbally given permission or signed an authorization.
