These regulations specify what rights patients have over their information and require covered entities, such as GAHHS, to protect that information verbally and electronically.


If an issue pertaining to HIPAA Privacy and/or Security arises, the situation should be reported immediately to ensure the integrity and privacy of GAHHS patient information are protected.
