Since Chilton Hospital is a covered entity and must obtain informed consent as a normal course of treatment, no additional consent from patients for the purposes of operations or payment would be necessary. Every employee and affiliate of Chilton Hospital will take all necessary steps to ensure that any Protected Health Information (PHI), which may be observed during the course of treatment or business is kept confidential. Any uses of patient data are for the purposes of performing treatment, operations, or obtaining payment as defined in the HIPAA regulations.
