The Amended Rule permits an unlimited number of hospital employees to have access to an unlimited amount of health information about you without your knowledge or consent as long as they can say they reviewed the information for purposes of treatment, payment or health care operations.Example 1: “A patient in a Boston-area hospital discovered that her medical record had been read by more than 200 of the hospital’s employees. (The Boston Globe, August 1, 2000)”.
