HC2051: Subpoenas, court orders and litigation requests

In this presentation, trial lawyer Curtis Thomas provides an overview and training on how covered entities must respond to requests for PHI made in the course of litigation or some other judicial proceeding to which the covered entity is not a party. He also discusses the difference between a court order for information and a request for information, highlights the duties in responding to both in light of HIPAA’s Privacy Rule, and examines other requirements that may come into play in responding to a request for PHI. Topics include:

  • Significance of PHI in certain lawsuits
  • Permitted disclosures for judicial and administrative proceedings
  • Disclosing records in response to a subpoena
  • Considerations in addition to HIPAA
  • Exceptions
