NSU is a hybrid entity with covered Health Care Components which must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) Privacy Regulations. The current designated covered Health Care Components for NSU may be viewed on this website.
The HIPAA Privacy Regulations impact research projects involving Protected Health Information (“PHI”), if the information is obtained from one of NSU’s covered Health Care Components, or from another covered entity outside of NSU.
HIPAA applies to research when:
Under the HIPAA Privacy Regulations, when a researcher at NSU wants to utilize PHI in order to conduct research, the researcher must (1) obtain the HIPAA Authorization of the subject whose PHI he or she wants to utilize or (2) satisfy a specific exception to the HIPAA Authorization requirement. This website provides information and guidance on the NSU’s policies and procedures related to HIPAA and Research.
If you have any questions about the NSU HIPAA Research Privacy Policies, please feel free to contact the Office of HIPAA Privacy at (954) 262-4302, your designated HIPAA Liaison, or the Ethics and Compliance Reporting Hotline at 888-609-NOVA (888-609-6682).
