Question description

    • How did the Meier court balance the plaintiffs’ right to access potentially relevant evidence during discovery with the non-parties’ physician-patient privilege? What did you discover about how entities should handle unauthorized or inadvertent disclosure of protected health information (PHI) from the Meier case? What principle regarding the limits of privilege does this case stand for?
    • What rules of law regarding physician-patient privilege do the other cases, State of Mississippi v. Baptist Memorial Hospital, Golden Triangle andState v. Weilert, stand for? How does the court balance the rights of the public with the individual’s right to privacy and confidentiality of his or her health information, as defined by HIPAA? 
    • Why do you think the courts in Baptist and Weilert gave public policy concerns so much weight, while the Meier court seemed to give physician-patient privilege greater weight in their respective analyses?
