HIPAA Oversight


The President has established and Institutional HIPAA Committee to oversee issues and concerns related to the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI) and electronic PHI.   It will provide oversight of TTUHSC's compliance with HIPAA and applicable state laws governing the use, storage and disclosure of PHI.  In further support of the regulations issued through the HITECH act, the HIPAA Committee, in conjunction with the Institutional Privacy and Security Officers will develop and maintain a Breach Notification Process to be used in the event of an unauthorized disclosure of Electronic Protected Health Information (EPHI).  This committee is considered a "medical committee" as defined under Texas Health and Safety Code §161.031(a) and/or other applicable state and federal statutes.
