Individuals have a right to have access to their Private Health Information in a designated record setting. Your access to PHI is decided by the security officer at our employer's office. The extent of your access is gauged by the tasks you perform on the job.
Nurses require more access than receptionists, and the doctor should have full access. With limited exceptions, the HIPPA Privacy Rule provides individuals with a legal, enforceable right to see and receive copies upon request of the information in their medical and other health records maintained by their health care providers.
