Question description

Week 1 - Discussion 1 – The Legal System




Imagine you are the director of health information services for a medium-sized health care facility.  Like many of your peers, you have contracted with an outside copying service to handle all requests for release of patient health information at your facility.  You have learned that a lobbying organization for trial attorneys in your state is promoting legislation to place a cap on photocopying costs, which is significantly below the actual costs incurred as part of the contract. (Case Study, p. 20)

Review this case study.  Define and describe each branch of government and discuss the roles each branch will play in considering this legislation. 

How would you and your professional organization act to influence this process?  Evaluate how the various sources of law relate to this case?
