[ RadSafe ] Dosimetry records

When I managed a dosimetry program the information was handled under the
"Privacy Act".  Any information associated with your name or SSAN was not
to be publicly distributed or displayed.

Are OSL dosimetry reports showing personnel doses to individuals,
whose names are listed on the report, subject to the privacy
provisions of HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act)? ?The personnel director for one of my clients has
determined this to be the case. ?In some facilities I have visited
recently, the dosimetry reports are posted on the bulletin board in
the break room or near the NRC Form 3 Notice to Workers for all to
see. ?She treats bioassay reports the same way. ?I don't have an
opinion either way, as I can see merit in her analysis. ?But, this is
a new one to me.

Any comments or advice?
Best Regards,
