Question description

Pretend you are the director of health information at a large medical center that offers inpatient, outpatient, and emergency care at several sites in one state.  Your medical center has announced that it will acquire a facility offering similar services in a neighboring state.  The laws and regulations governing the retention and destruction of health records differ between these states. 
How would the lack of a consistent set of laws and regulations on these two matters affect the institution you serve?  Outline the specific steps you would take to deal with the current situation.
