Dear Patients and Visitors,

Welcome to the HIPAA Privacy Program website. Protecting the privacy and security of your health information is important.  The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules are part of a federal regulation designed to help protect the privacy and security of your health information. 

The University of Chicago Medicine Notice of Privacy Practices ("the Notice")   describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed, as well as how you can get access to this information.  This Notice describes the privacy practices of the University of Chicago Organized Health Care Arrangement, and it applies to services you receive at:

1. The University of Chicago Medical Center (UCMC), including its nurses, residents, volunteers, and other staff;
2. Portions of the University of Chicago that participate in or support the activities of health care including its physicians, nurses, students, volunteers, and other staff; and
3. UCMC Community Physicians

In addition to the Notice of Privacy Practices, we have provided a few links and forms to help you with your medical information at the University of Chicago.
