For finding things on privacy and confidentiality, consider searching combinations of the following terms:

  • confidentiality and medical records
  • privacy and health records
  • confidentiality and patient records
  • (HIPAA or confidentiality or privacy) and (health records or medical records) and patient*

Look for the above terms in the appropriate resources. For information on where to enter them, use our guide to HIT resources.
