HIPAA

Researchers working with any kind of clinical information should also be aware of the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Useful web-based courses on this can be found at the Health Information Privacy and Security (HIPAA/HIPS) Training modules from U. Miami (CITI provider); Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving www.ihs.gov  and at the training provided by UCLA. Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving www.ihs.gov  When appropriate, IHS IRBs will provide the HIPAA waivers necessary for a study to be conducted. In applications to the IHS IRBs, researchers should state whether their project requires a HIPAA waiver and if so, how it qualifies for one.
