As we prepare for contingency work arrangements in response to COVID-19, we must also focus attention on ensuring the continued security of Protected Health Information (PHI).  All Washington University HIPAA and Information Security policies and procedures, including those for handling physical and electronic PHI, remain in effect as if the employee was working onsite at the university.  For additional information and requirements, please see https://it.wustl.edu/telecommuting/wusm-telecommuting/.
