HIPAA Privacy Policies are Online

The President’s Cabinet recently ratified the University’s revised HIPAA Privacy Policy Set, which is composed of 46 policies addressing the HIPAA HITECH Omnibus Rule, patients’ right of access, the merger of the College of Medicine into Drexel University, and the recent change in ownership of Hahnemann University Hospital into American Academic Health System. Use this link to access the HIPAA Privacy Policies for the clinical practices:


To help implement the policies, the Privacy Office is conducting departmental training and Q&A sessions for applicable covered entities. Please contact the Privacy Office at 267.359.5597 and/or to schedule a training or Q&A session. The Privacy Office will also be reaching out to applicable units to arrange trainings. All covered entities are encouraged to participate in these trainings as the Office of Compliance, Privacy, and Internal Audit continues to build a University-wide privacy and security culture.


Please contact the Office of Compliance, Privacy, and Internal Audit if you have any questions.
