Revision to new HIPAA Authorization form template

Nov 25, 2009 at 3:12pm

The new HIPAA Authorization form template has been revised in some sections, to incorporate some excellent additional feedback provided by researchers.  The most substantial revision is in the Expiration Date section. Also, references to placing research data into medical records have been deleted, as that information is best communicated to subjects in the consent form rather than the HIPAA authorization form.  There are other, more minor, revisions scattered throughout the form.   If you have already submitted your new HIPAA form to the IRB for review, you do not need to re-do it.
