      Program Overview:
      The NYSBA’s Health Law Section, in collaboration with Albany Law School and Fordham Law School, is holding the second program of a two-part series exploring the state of population health initiatives for improving the public's health and the law affecting:  Electronic Health Records (EHRs) across provider types and payor systems; Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) and Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs), including the State Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY) and e-MOLST; data collection and integration; and research and ethics. These areas are of increasing importance both in understanding the breadth and impact of federal and state health laws on health systems and systems innovation and how research and data may inform health law and policy as well as clinical practice.
