DHMH is a hybrid entity.
That means that DHMH has both covered and non-covered functions. Our
Providers and Health Plans fall under the rules of HIPAA. These covered
entities can include, but are not limited to:
Infectious Disease and Environmental Health Administration
Any covered entity must follow all the
requirements of HIPAA. Every covered entity also has its own HIPAA
officer responsible for ensuring that patients’ privacy is maintained.
If you suspect that a DHMH covered entity is responsible for a privacy
violation, please contact the DHMH Privacy Officer.
