UEHC may share your compliance status with your supervisor to let them know if policy requirements have been met. We will not disclose specific diagnoses or other medical information such as lab test results. This is in accordance with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Departmental Human Resource Personnel will monitor new employee compliance. This information is displayed on the HR database, ER3MA. ER3MA displays individual employees’ compliance with a “Health Screening- Initial Physical” field when a person has started their health screening process. When everything is completed, a completion date is entered in “Health Screening-Initial Physical” field. If incomplete, the individual’s department will follow up with the employee to ensure appropriate compliance requirements are met.
ER3MA database records the date when an employee has completed the required screening/surveillance evaluation. The specific results are not posted on this database, but are individually discussed with the person at the time of their evaluation.
