Given UW Health providers' diverse functions, almost any worker who deals with patient information could have to do unusual or "oddball" activities that require authorizations. Further, many workers-clinical and non-clinical- use and disclose patient information for activities like research, fundraising, and marketing, as these are important and common functions at UW Health.
