Information Privacy Office

Protecting your health information is important to University of Utah Health Care (UUHC).  We follow strict laws that require us to maintain the confidentiality of your health information.  We promise we will protect your information to the best of our ability through the training of our faculty, staff, and volunteers to use or disclose patient data with the utmost caution and consideration. We support that promise by also implementing technical safeguards that meet the highest business security standards in the industry.

Notice of Privacy Practices - Your Rights (HIPAA)

University of Utah Health Care understands that your physical and mental health information is very personal and private. Every patient we serve is provided a Notice of Privacy Practices the first time they come to us for health services.

  1. The notice tells you how we use and/or disclose your information to make sure you get the best treatment, with as little inconvenience as possible, for you.
  2. The notice advises you, the patient, of your privacy rights in the control of your own health information.

We invite you to review our Notice of Privacy Practices to learn how we safeguard your information and what your rights are under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).  This document is the centerpiece of our privacy promise to you.
