HIPAA is directed towards healthcare providers and healthcare businesses and has nothing to do with health information once you have shared it or given your permission to share it with, your employer for example. If your Grandmother calls you to tell you that Aunt Doris is in the hospital to get her gall bladder taken out is not a HIPAA violation unless your Grandma is Aunt Doris’s surgeon.Ccould substantiate that definitive claim?
Brad specifically referred to the CBA during his T&R interview, though I admit to not seeing anything definitive.
I’m not a lawyer but at least tangentially aware of HIPAA requirements and believe the team disclosing health related status about a specific player would be on the wrong side of that line.
Not sure I get this. Are you stating the team is choosing not to disclose when they could be?
A basketball team is not a healthcare company. It has access to whatever healthcare information the player grants to it and can share that information based on their contract, confidentiality agreements, common sense and common decency. HIPAA does not apply.
