Data Security and eUCI

Agencies that collect client data, either on paper or electronically, are responsible for protecting the data. Data security is defined by Public Health Data Standards as “physical, technological, or administrative safeguards or tools used to protect identifiable health information from unwarranted access or disclosure."  

Data security entails attention to security and also requires attention to protecting the privacy of client information in accordance with HIPAA and other requirements. Ryan White data collection systems use the eUCI (Unique Client Identifier), an algorithm that meets the highest privacy and security standards.
