The patient’s HIPAA Authorization gives the Covered Entity permission to disclose PHI for use in the study but it does not carry forward to also bind the sponsor. The Covered Entity needs to contractually obligate the sponsor (or other recipient) via the clinical trial agreement and/or a data use agreement, to limit uses or disclosures as spelled out in the Authorization, unless the use/disclosure is otherwise required or permitted by law.
