The Privacy & Contracting Office for Tulane University oversees two functions--privacy compliance and contract management.

In the privacy compliance function, the office designs, directs and monitors the health sciences HIPAA compliance program to prevent, detect and respond appropriately to violations of the law. This office is responsible for compliance with all policies and procedures related to the privacy program designed to comply with the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) standards for privacy and ARRA (HITECH) regulations.

In the contracts management function, this office manages all aspects of the contracting process for agreements for the health sciences as assigned. It is the repository for all contracts involving TUMG physicians and clinicians.  

The Privacy & Contracting Office fosters a corporate culture that promotes integrity and ethical behavior in all matters relating to compliance, and acts as consultant to faculty and staff on privacy, compliance, and contract issues.
