Public Health Departments

Public Health & Safety

All Public Health Departments and their Business Associates are required to comply with the federal rules of HIPAA/HITECH Security, Privacy, and Breach notifications standards and state specific HIPAA rules. These rules are designed to protect the electronic Protected Health Information or ePHI that are managed in a public health setup. Most of the HIPAA rules for public health departments are the same as any other Covered Entity under HIPAA. However, there are specific requirements including behavioral and mental health notes which need special attention.

Learn more about the HIPAA/ HITECH rules for the public health departments:
