If patient partners are not institution employees, can we involve them in recruitment activities requiring access to protected health information?

Awardees must comply with their institutional privacy and security policies governing access, use, and disclosure of protected health information for research purposes. Please consult your institution’s IRB and/or legal counsel for any questions regarding compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations and other applicable laws.
