HIPAA and Codes of Ethics
The situation. Healthcare providers need
access to patient personal health information wherever patients are
present for care. Systems that standardize electronic medical records
provide such access, but the risk to privacy that accompanies that
access is real, and breaches often make the news. At the Federal level,
the HIPAA Privacy Rule protects personal health information gathered
by healthcare providers, but most agree that information needs more
protection than HIPAA currently affords. Some believe added protection
may be found in the forming and keeping of codes of ethics.

A scenario. Mary works in a hospital health
information management department, and Maureen, her friend, comes one
day to pick up the medical records of a patient who is a client of the
lawyer Maureen works for. Maureen, however, has forgotten to bring the
client’s signed authorization form, though she assures Mary the form,
which she saw the patient sign, is at her office. Since Maureen’s need
for the form is urgent and there isn’t enough time to return with the
form today, Maureen hopes to take the records and return with the form
another day.

Read the iHealthCoalition’s eHealth Code of Ethics, the Summary of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, and with the above scenario in mind, consider the following questions:
In light of what the Code and HIPAA say, how might Mary and Maureen best resolve the problem?How might a code of ethics provide personal medical information more protection than HIPAA? In the above code, only one of the eleven sections
is explicitly labeled privacy. Do matters covered in other sections
play roles in protecting personal medical information? Explain. In what ways, if any, does HIPAA protect personal medical information where codes of ethics do not?Support your answers with examples, clear reasoning, and by citing the Code of Ethics and HIPAA regulation directly.
