Medical Records and Privacy
Learn About Your Issue
This category covers what options and protections a person has in regard to their medical data, records that doctors and hospitals might have about them, and what they can do if they think private data has been shared about them inappropriately. It also covers their ability to access their own medical record and share it with other providers or people.
You may file a health information privacy and security complaint with the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) if you feel a covered entity or business associate violated your (or someone else’s) health information privacy rights or committed another violation of the Privacy, Security or Breach Notification Rules.
