2 The United Stated Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS. claims that information may not be disclosed to a third party without consent. While that may be technically true, it may be very misleading. A disclosure for marketing can be made to a business associate, and anyone can become a business associate by signing a contract with a covered entity. Patient records may be disclosed, for instance, to a telemarketing firm if the firm becomes a business associate of a health care provider. While the general privacy rules attach to business associates who receive disclosures from covered entities, the fact remains that broad scale marketing using patient information is permitted. Business associates could be allowed to make disclosures to other business associates. Moreover, there are three significant exceptions to HHS's privacy rule.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
