Updated Notice of Privacy Practice for UNC Health Care System

The newly revised Notice of Privacy Practice (NPP) is now available. An NPP must be posted at all patient intake locations and a copy of the notice must be provided to a patient when they request one. UNC Health Care System managers should replace old Notice of Privacy Practice posters and brochures with the new versions as soon as possible but no later than June 24, 2019 when the new NPP Acknowledgement will go live in Epic.

NPP Posters are available for pick up 8:00 am –5:00 pm in your Health Information Management department. They can also be ordered by any entity from the UNC Copy Center using Job #HD 118 (specify poster). UNCPN Clinics should contact their Regional Managers to obtain a poster.  Mountable holders can be ordered from Staples using Item #82830 for ten pack or Item #806145 for a single wall mount. The NPP Brochure is available in both English and Spanish and can be ordered from the UNC Copy Center using Job #HD118 (specify brochure).

For more information about the NPP or how your location can ensure compliance with this requirement, please visit the UNCHCS Privacy Office’s NPP intranet page here.

The Privacy Office would like to take this time to ensure the following are posted within each facility: 

Any questions regarding the updated NPP should be directed to the UNCHCS Privacy Office at 984-974-1069 or Privacy@unchealth.unc.edu
