HIPAA and Clinical Research Training
Federal privacy protections under HIPAA apply to human participant research, in addition to the Common Rule and FDA regulations. Individuals conducting clinical research at UH are required to understand how these regulations affect clinical research. This training will also outline UH’s policies governing the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI).
This training builds upon the information contained within the Health Information Privacy and Security (HIPS) module from the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) online training program. In addition, this session will:
- provide a refresher of the HIPAA requirements for privacy and information security relating to research
- discuss the 2009 HITECH Act
- provide practical examples of how these laws affect research involving UH patient data
