limited data set

The minimum necessary and sufficient information about a patient's medical care (e.g., dates of admission and discharge from hospital; the patient's dates of birth, death, and age; and the zip code in which the patient resides). Under regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), data that reveal more about a patient (e.g., name, address, social security number) cannot be divulged in communication between health care agencies or professionals without the patient's explicit approval.
