Electronic health information (EHI) refers to patient data stored in electronic form that are collected and shared for healthcare delivery and public health purposes. In this anthology, “primary use” of EHI refers to use of electronic patient data for providing direct healthcare services, such as treatment. “Secondary use” refers to use of electronic patient data for public health purposes and treatment-related research, licensure, and payment. The materials included in this anthology were found through online searches for resources published on EHI and law during 2010-2014. Materials were included here if they addressed EHI-related law or policy in states, tribal lands, localities, and territories. While this anthology reflects search results as of 2014, it should not be considered exhaustive.
