New HIPAA TrainingPersonal Health Information (PHI) is protected under the federal law known as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This law was enacted in 1996 to protect the PHI of all individuals and to prevent that information from being used in any manner that would detrimental to the individual. Health information is both personal and private and should be disclosed only to those who have a right or legal need to know. As employees of Loyola University Chicago, we have the responsibility to protect the PHI of others, as outlined in the HIPAA. A portion of this rule mandates that all full-time faculty and staff are required to complete awareness training to build and develop the necessary knowledge and skills to protect PHI. This training must be completed when hired and on an annual basis going forward. For those involved in research, including human subject research, additional training is required.
