Privacy policy and Institutional Review Board

Maine CDC’s policy related to Restricted Data:
Restricted data include any and all information created or received by the Maine CDC that relates to: the past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition of an individual; the provision of health services to an individual; the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health services to an individual; or certain environmental, health engineering, or toxicological data derived from individually-owned dwellings, land, or businesses; and that allows for the direct or indirect identification of that individual.

Restricted data will only be released to external users after the Maine CDC program designee(s) responsible for managing data requests has reviewed the request.  The request must include an Application for Release of Restricted Data, along with the Data Use Agreement, and a research protocol and proof of approval by, or exemption from, an Institutional Review Board (IRB) formed and maintained in accordance with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Code of Federal Regulations for Protection of Human Subjects (45 CFR 46, revised March 8, 1983).

To the extent that a unit of the Maine CDC is considered a covered entity within the meaning of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-91, codified at 42 U.S.C. §§ 1320 (d)(1)-(d)(8)), the applicable standards, rules and regulations established under that statute are applicable to the data collected by that particular Maine CDC unit.

If it is determined that part or all of a data request can be accomplished through in-house analysis, use of unrestricted data, or the creation of proxy variables, the Maine CDC reserves the right to create such products to fill a request, rather than release the restricted data.

Maine CDC is committed to the protection of human subjects participating in public health research and assuring that the rights and welfare of human participants in research are protected in the conduct of all public health activities. For more information, refer to Maine CDC’s Institutional Review Board (IRB)
