There are three kinds of personally identifiable health care information that are covered by HIPAA privacy laws. They are the spoken word, electronic, and paper records. The correct answer to this question is answer D.
For those who do not know, HIPAA privacy laws are laws that the United States enacted back in 1996 to ensure that everyone had access to their personal medical records and so that they weren’t being used improperly.

A lot of medical practices changed as a result, and it is hard for anyone who doesn’t have access to the records to get access unless they have been authorized. For example, a sign in sheet in the doctor’s office can’t display medical information - such as what the issue they’re coming in for is or past issues they’ve had. It can display names and appointment times, if necessary.
