University of Washington HIPAA Designation

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act privacy regulations (45 CFR Parts 160 and 164) require that the University of Washington designate its health care components. The University is a hybrid entity, having both non-health care components and health care components. Non-health care components are not subject to the HIPAA regulations governing privacy of protected health information.


The designation of the University of Washington’s health care components is addressed in Privacy Policy 01.
