    Default a HIPAA Violation

    My question involves public health law in the State of: OH

    Is it ok for a doctor to record on their personal phone your encounter with them for note taking purposes?

    I would be concerned if the devices was lost, stolen, and or hacked and who might this info be shared with.

    Yes it is legal for the doctor to record the conversation. HIPAA does not regulate recording information; it simply regulates disclosure of protected health information (PHI). Ohio law does not prohibit the recording either. That said, the doctor would of course have to ensure the recording is not improperly disclosed or that could result in a HIPAA violation.
