Patient Notice of Privacy Practice

The Notice of Privacy Practices (NOP) describes how medical information may
be used and disclosed and how to request access to this information.

SUNY Downstate Medical Center Health Science Center at Brooklyn is required by law to notify patients of the uses and disclosures of their protected health information (PHI). The NOPs listed in the table below describe the individual rights of DMC patients with respect to PHI in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability act of 1996 (HIPAA) and its accompanying regulations.

More specific Notices of Privacy Practices are also available describing special categories (HIV, Mental Health, Alcohol & Substance Abuse) of patient information for which greater privacy protections are afforded in compliance with HIPAA and New York State Law.
