do you have consent to do so from anyone?
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 7 months ago.
It is a violation if being done without express patient consent.
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 7 months ago.
also consider having a Business Associate Agreement with the hospital or healthcare provider and then if it is for a legitimate purpose, they are covered under HIPAA by the consent the patient gives to the hospital or provider.
