Accurate and electronically portable medical records are crucial to patients and their medical care providers. Modern technology allows for unprecedented ability to collect, store and transmit data. State and Federal laws require medical professionals to meet exacting standards for electronic record keeping and electronic transmission of critical medical records. Attorneys representing physicians and health care facilities are faced with challenging issues of advising their clients on compliance with technological requirements, balanced against records access and patient privacy concerns. This very timely program will greatly assist health law attorneys in helping their clients meet these challenges. An outstanding faculty, drawn from the legal, medical and business professions, will provide comprehensive coverage of the ambitious program agenda.
