Slide notes:Individually identifiable health information , or IIHI [ eye - eye -H- eye ], is any data that can be correlated with an individualfor example, information in a medical record or a database that can be linked to a specific patient. A related term is protected health information, or PHI, which is defined as individually identifiable health information. The HIPAA privacy rule defines individually identifiable health information as a subset of health information, including demographic and other health information related to past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition of an individual that is created or received by a health care provider, health plan, employer, or health care clearinghouse. Finally, consent is a broad term, but it is defined here in the context of privacy. When consent is given to the health care provider organization and/or physician, it entails written or verbal permission to allow use of individually identifiable health information for the activity of providing health care or for participation in a research project or related activity. 6
