The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) Privacy and Data Compliance Office (PDCO), in cooperation with the Office of the General Counsel and the Department's Bureau privacy liaisons developed the MDPH Confidentiality Policy and Procedures. All Department workforce members must comply with the procedures outlined in these manuals, which dictate the standards for all confidential data held by the Department.

The MDPH Hospitals each have comparable documents that are consistent with this manual, but developed specifically for their workforce.

Questions that relate to the Confidentiality Policy and Procedures, an individual's or organization's interaction with MDPH under HIPAA, or to MDPH's hybrid entity status, and should be referred to:
