George Washington University launches health information law website

George Washington University has launched a new site to help providers understand federal and state health information laws. HealthInfoLaw.org contains information on current health information laws, offering insights into legislation including HIPAA, the HITECH Act and the Affordable Care Act. "Health information law exists at the intersection of many crucial and related fields: law, healthcare, public health, market competition, consumer protection, information technology and health insurance," Sara Rosenbaum, a law professor at the GWU School of Public Health and Health Services, said in a statement. "A modest change in any of these fields can trigger a daunting set of issues and challenges. HealthInfoLaw.org offers keys to understanding the laws that govern health information and their implications for healthcare, consumer rights, and population health." Announcement
