If you work for the County you may see confidential information. Information Technology employees and fiscal employees may not see patients or clients but they will see confidential information about them. If you walk through patient or client care areas on your way to your office, you may see individuals utilizing County services. HIPAA says you must keep this information confidential. That means if you see a friend or neighbor at the County as a client or patient, you must not disclose that to anyone else - not to co-workers, other friends, your family, or friends or family of the individual you saw.
