FERPA and HIPAA Privacy Awareness

This webinar was conducted on March 8, 2019 and is available for on-demand viewing below. Please see the accompanying handout in the sidebar.


This presention from the American College Health Association will review FERPA (The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) and HIPAA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), the two pieces of federal legislation that pertain to the privacy and protection of healthcare records and protected health information on our college and university campuses. You will look at the similarities and differences between FERPA and HIPAA and the situations under which one or both may apply. You will learn the difference between FERPA educational and treatment records, and why that is important in your college health program. You will review “TPO” and the “Minimum Necessary Rule.” The presentation will close with answers to common FERPA/HIPAA privacy questions.
