The UNC Health Care System Privacy Policies have recently been revised. Employees can access the new HIPAA policies directly on the UNC Health Care Privacy Office website. The policies are arranged by descriptive content subheadings to help employees more easily find the policies they are seeking.

NOTE: There is one significant policy change to highlight: At some UNC Health Care locations, employees were formerly permitted to access their own medical records or records of others (such as friends and family with a signed authorization) directly in Epic@UNC. This policy has been retired and employees may no longer access their own medical record or records of their friends and family in Epic@UNC for personal reasons. View details on this change and the many resources available.
