Protected Health Information (PHI)
Protected health information is individually identifiable information relating to the past, present, or future health status of individuals including, diagnoses, treatment information, medical test results, prescription information, medical identification numbers, and demographic information such as birth dates, gender, ethnicity, and contact and emergency contact information. Source: HIPAA Journal.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically.
State and federal law (i.e., HIPAA) require various entities to protect the private information of individuals receiving physical or mental health care. In presenting information about clients and client outcomes in the Transparency Suite, the MHSOAC has aggregated or suppressed display of information about small groups of individuals to minimize the likelihood that any individual can be reidentified from displayed information.
