Why health information law?
Health information law exists at the intersection of many crucial and interrelated fields: law, health care, consumer protection, information technology, public health, insurance. Each small change can trigger a daunting set of issues and challenges. HealthInfoLaw.org offers keys to understanding the laws that govern health information and the implications they can have across health care and beyond.
About The Project
A project of the George Washington University s Hirsh Health Law and Policy Program, Health Information and the Law (HealthInfoLaw.org), developed with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is designed to serve as a practical online resource to federal and state laws governing access, use, release, and publication of health information. Constantly updated, the site addresses the current legal and regulatory framework of health information law and changes in the legal and policy landscape impacting health information law and its implementation with commentary and key documents.
