DEVICE ENCRYPTION

 

The privacy and security of the protected health information (PHI) governed by federal HIPAA law and monitored by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR), is of critical importance to the entire OU Health Sciences Center community. 

Therefore, your college, in coordination with the Provost’s Office and Information Technology, requires students to have a university compliant computing device for university related activities, including academic course work, testing, classroom notes, OUHSC email, and clinical or research activities prior to the start of your academic program.
