When you use the “on” products to track medical information for students, you make it easier for students, parents, and faculty to communicate vital information.

Please review the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) for details about how to handle medical information and patient privacy.

Security roles determine what users can see and do in the “on” products. However, the nurse must ensure that his/her password is kept secret and that unauthorized individuals do not peek at the screen when medical information is shown.

Because medical information must remain HIPAA or FERPA compliant, only authorized users can view a student’s specific medical information. If another user attempts to impersonate an authorized user, sensitive information will not appear on the impersonator’s screen.
