Policies and Initiatives:  HIPAA

Departments should inform suppliers if the product they are buying, such as a computer, will be used to store information protected under HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Suppliers should make every effort to maintain the security of such information, for example, if the product is returned to them for repair.

More information is available in the Administrative Guide and the University HIPAA Manual.
