Patient, Student, or Physician Information
Contracts often provide that we share patient, student or physician information, records
or reports with the contracting party or a third party, i.e., the Texas Department
of Health, a school district, etc.
Whenever a contract has such provisions, we should add:
...to the extent such information is not confidential, privileged or otherwise immune
from disclosure under state or federal laws.
It is critical that this language be used in connection with the disclosure of patient or student information, records or reports, and it is prudent to add this provision when sharing any TTUHSC information.
