The HIPAA Privacy Rule was not initially designed to impact medical or scientific research. However, since its implementation, it has negatively affected the research community through several facets. The main issue resulting from HIPAA's privacy rule is derived from the ambiguous language in the law itself. This paper looks at the benefits of removing medical researchers from the scope of the Privacy Rule and placing it back under the previously used Common Rule with several key revisions.
