Patient Rights

Our commitment to quality health care includes a commitment to the privacy rights of our patients.

HIPAA guarantees patient rights

  • Receive a Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP)
  • View & copy medical record
  • Request amendments to the medical record
  • Request alternate communications
  • Request restrictions on uses & disclosures
  • Receive accounting of non-routine disclosures
  • Right to complain to the DHHS

The KU NPP explains how we will use patient information and describes patient's rights under the law.
