timer Asked: Mar 11th, 2016

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.
