HIPAA

NJNU wants to remind our members that any access into a patient’s confidential information that is not under your direct care is a violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This is a federal law that all health care providers must abide by. No matter what good intentions you may have for looking up any information for a visitor, doctor, relative or friend, the minute you access that information you are breaking the law.
