1.MEP.14 Need to Know Access Procedure

Policy:  Community Care identifies those individuals and classes of individuals who need access to health information and the categories of information to which they have access. Reasonable efforts must be made to ensure that access is granted only according to this information. All Job Descriptions contain an identifying number/code to designate a person’s need to know access.
