About Us > The Project

The Privacy / Data Protection Project is a public education effort of the University of Miami School of Medicine. It was developed under the auspices of the University's inter-disciplinary Ethics Programs.

Development funding was provided by the University of Miami Medical Group and the UM School of Medicine. The Project does not accept funds from, nor does it promote the products or services of, any commercial organization.

The project's focus is on information protections in the health sector, particularly the HIPAA Privacy Rule and Security Rule. The site contains a set of free web-based HIPAA courses to meet the training requirements of these rules -- linked to a glossary of more than 200 entries on privacy/security law and technology.

The site is hosted by UM Medical Web Services. Technical consultation is provided by UM Medical Information Technology.

We welcome your comments and questions about anything on the site. Please use our contact information.
