NRPM: Standard Health Care Provider Identifier. 4. Health information.

05/07/1998

“Health information,” as defined in section 1171 of the Act, means any information, whether oral or recorded in any form or medium, that--

  • Is created or received by a health care provider, health plan, public health authority, employer, life insurer, school or university, or health care clearinghouse; and
  • Relates to the past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition of an individual; the provision of health care to an individual; or the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to an individual.

We propose the same definition for our regulations.
