The Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights released its long-awaited guidance regarding the de-identification of protected health information in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

The guidance document does not offer new ways for covered entities to meet the de-identification standard in the HIPAA Privacy Rule. Instead it gives insight on the agency's expectation for how the rule's existing de-identification methods should apply to traditional paper, as well as digital, records.
