HIPAA laws do not expressly ban names in - body of reports BUT

has more to do with the distribution and disclosure of medical records to those with direct involvement with the patient and also to those who the patient gives express permission to see/get their medical reports. Any reports that might be sent out for research purposes have to be redacted of identifying data in the demographics and also the body of the report. Other reports that get transmitted over the internet to permissible parties most likely have the demographic information transmitted separately from the body of the report and then reassembled at the receivers end. A lot of facilities who oversee dictation and transcription ask that names NOT be transcribed into reports to make it more foolproof if the redaction process misses a name. If there are no names, there will be nothing to miss. So in the end, it is not illegal according to HIPAA to put names in reports, as most likely these reports get sent only to people who should be getting them. But just to be on the safe side, some facilities ask that names NOT be put into the reports.
