Focus

HIS, IS, and continuity of care workers are the most likely to make the "publicly-beneficial" uses and disclosures listed above. These activities do not require patient permission under HIPAA, though disclosures to outside entities must be recorded and kept in a list (for the "accounting of disclosures" requirement, as described later).
