Slide notes:The HIPAA Privacy Rule requires that an authorization be obtained for the use of PHI for purposes other than for TPO. The covered entity is not allowed to condition treatments of the patient on whether or not an individual gives authorization for use of PHI beyond TPO. When covered entities release PHI, reasonable safeguards must be in place to limit the use to the minimum necessary standard, as defined by the statute from the HHS Office for Civil Rights. 13
