HIPAA & Related Confidentiality Policy
HIPPA or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a federal standard that protects the privacy of patient health care information (PHI). All DMRT students are required to complete an online HIPAA training module offered by the University of Maryland in Baltimore. This module is part of the MEDT 409 Laboratory Management/QA/Regulatory Issues course. Completion of the HIPPA training module is one requirement for student progression to clinical rotation/externship.
Prior to participating in the clinical rotation/externship, the DMRT student is required to sign a form whereby he/she agrees to abide by the rules and regulations of the clinical sites utilized by the program while on their premises during any assigned clinical or research rotations. Clinical sites may require the student to satisfy site-specific HIPAA policies.
