I am writing to remind you of the critical importance of our patients’ right to privacy. Patients trust that we will hold in the strictest confidence the personal information they share with us. As you know, the UNC Health Care System takes our commitment to patient privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Members of our medical staff should only access medical record information as necessary to perform their job related functions. Please review this policy for specific details.
Thank for your attention to this important issue.
