Health Care Management
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. Discuss how the lack of a consistent set of laws and regulations on these two matters affects the institution you serve, and outline the steps you will take to deal with the situation. Please respond to at least one classmate before the deadline as well.
