Federal regulation that requires health care professional to protect the privacy and configentiality of patients health information is?

What you are referring to are a set of laws derived from the Health Information Privacy and Portability Act, commonly called HIPPA. Essentially, these laws are designed to protect the privacy of patients. They prohibit healthcare personnel from sharing any patient information without express, written consent from the patient, including sharing with another medical professional. This includes test results, health or medication histories, and even x-rays. It even prohibits healthcare workers from discussing patients' information with his/her workers or with anyone else. (So, for example, a nurse cannot go home and tell his/her friend that 'Jim from HEB' has hepatitis. In theory, anyway. but I'm sure this business goes on.) This is why patients must sign a release form prior to becoming a patient in any healthcare facility. Hope that helps.
