LIFE: Privacy and Ethics Statement
A number of LSMNJ’s affiliates are considered “Covered Entities” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, commonly known as HIPAA. As such, those affiliates are required to notify residents of how their medical information may be used and disclosed, and how residents may access their medical information, in a “Notice of Privacy Practices.” We have posted on this website a Notice of Privacy Practices for each of our covered Entities.
LSMNJ is considered a “Business Associate” under HIPAA because its services to the Covered Entities may involve residents’ medical information. Like the Covered Entities, LSMNJ also protects the privacy and security of residents’ medical information by adhering to federal and state law as well as its specific privacy and security commitments to the Covered Entities.
