Addendum: Advocate Confidential - March 11, 2002 Associate Access to Patient Information Under the federal patient information privacy rules, health-care providers are expected to take "reasonable safeguards" to prevent inappropriate uses and disclosures of patient information. In addition, the privacy rules require that only the "minimum necessary" patient information that is needed to care for of the patient or to perform other work is accessed by staff or associates. This rule applies to all associates and volunteers who work with patients or with patient information and requires that the patient information each associates needs to access be documented. This is done best by including a provision in the associate's job description that identifies the level of access to patient information the associate requires. All associate job descriptions must be revised to include this provision by March 1, 2003. Managers should work with Human Resources to update all job descriptions and should review their level of access to patient information with all associates, and review the access level with associates annually. Associates need to be aware of the types of patient information, behavioral health information and IS systems they have access to, and report inappropriate system access to their manager.
