If a patient "opts out" of the patient list:
his/her information will not be shared with outside callers or visitors
the patient is not included in the patient list maintained by the Hospital telephone operators
all patient names, including those patients who have "opted out," appear on all other internal patient lists with the appropriate "opt out" flags.
Please refer to the UNC HCS Privacy/Security Reference Sheet on the UNC HCS HIPAA web site (http://intranet.unchealthcare.org/hospitaldepartments/hipaa) for additional information regarding the "opt out" flags.
