My Question is regarding data repository’s. I was put in a data repository behind my back And without my consent. I was informed by this hospital that they have to get a signed consent in order to put someone into the repository. I declined that specifically at the hospital as well as I declined to be involved in any research programs.
But I was put into this project and my medical records were put into this repository with five other hospitals without my knowledge and behind my back. My question to you is what do I do now where do I go from here is this a valid Hippa compliant?

Are you able to answer
Personal Injury Lawyer: legalg, Attorney replied 19 days ago

Personal medical information cannot be released to third parties unless there is a medically necessary reason to do so or the patient consents.

There is a privacy exception for data repositories that are maintained for research and other valid research purposes; please see:

https://privacyruleandresearch.nih.gov/research_repositories.asp

So for example so long as privacy safeguards are enacted as between the hospital and the researcher then it is not deemed a violation; please see:

https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/special-topics/research/index.html

The office for civil rights is responsible for filing any violations and any fine imposed does not go to the aggrieved patient:

Also health information exchange (HIE)s - yes - one moment please.

Personal Injury Lawyer: legalg, Attorney replied 19 days ago

HIEs are exempt from HIPAA - please see:

Is a health information organization (HIO) covered by the HIPAA Privacy Rule? A1: Generally, no. The HIPAA Privacy Rule applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and health care providers that conduct covered transactions. The functions a HIO typically performs do not make it a health plan, health care clearinghouse, or covered health care provider. Thus, a HIO is generally not a HIPAA covered entity. However, a HIO that performs certain functions or activities on behalf of, or provides certain services to, a covered entity which require access to PHI would be a business associate under the Privacy Rule. See 45 C.F.R. § 160.103 (definition of “business associate”). HIPAA covered entities must enter into contracts or other agreements with their business associates that require the business associates to safeguard and appropriately protect the privacy of protected health information. See 45 C.F.R. §§ 164.502(e), 164.504(e). (See also the relevant business associate requirements in the HIPAA Security Rule at 45 C.F.R. §§ 164.308(b), 164.314(a).) For instance, a HIO that manages the exchange of PHI through a network on behalf of multiple covered health care providers is a business associate of the covered providers, and thus, one or more business associate agreements would need to be in place between the covered providers and the HIO.

My wife went to her primary care physician this afternoon
My wife went to her primary care physician this afternoon for a follow appointment. During the visit her physician asked about a neurological appointment he had recently requested for her. She told the doctor that she had not received an appointment. The doctor looked in the records and found the neurologist had indeed responded to the request. The response from the neurologist was that they could not see my wife because I had visited this office and did not complete treatment. My wife's doctor read my name from the report. My wife and I see different doctors in different practices. I feel that my information should not have been considered. I also do not think the neurologist office had a right to share my name with a doctor from a another healthcare facility. … read more
