Health Information and the Law Website. A project of the George Washington University’s Hirsh Health Law and Policy Program, the Health Information and the Law website contains resources about federal and state laws governing access, use, release, and publication of health information. Constantly updated, the site addresses the current legal and regulatory framework of health information law and changes in the legal and policy landscape affecting health information law and its implementation. The site was developed with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
