Final Paper

Focus of the Final Paper

“As health care becomes more complex, the interplay between the law and health
care increases. Government regulation of the health-care field continues almost
without pause while lawsuits against health-care providers appear to increase.
The interplay of these forces significantly affects the health information
manger’s ability to manage patient-specific health information. Thus, the
health information manager must possess a fundamental understanding of the law”
