Gray Plant Mooty has partnered with the Minnesota Department of Health to develop a set of tools to support the exchange of patient health information in Minnesota. Although many patients desire and benefit from care coordination and the sharing of their medical history, conflicting federal and state laws and regulations inhibit providers from exchanging such information.
The Foundations in Privacy Toolkit was developed to guide providers through these conflicting state and federal privacy requirements. The toolkit includes template policies and procedures, flow charts, template agreements, and checklists and is available for free via the link below.
“I am extremely pleased to work with such a responsive group of attorneys. It is evident in every interaction with them that they are truly concerned about helping us achieve our organization’s goals. They know our business and they know our history.”
