ILHIE Legal Task Force 

A number of Illinois laws and regulations currently affect the formation and operation in Illinois of Health Information Exchanges (HIEs)  Some of these laws and regulations raise complex challenges to the exchange of health information through an HIE. Wishing to identify and address such barriers, the Office of Health Information Technology (OHIT) has formed an Illinois HIE Legal Task Force with the following ten subject matter “workgroups” which will address specific Illinois statutes and/or substantive topics, with a view to recommending improvements to such laws and to presenting evidence in support of such recommendations (e.g., whitepapers, testimony). The work of the workgroups will be coordinated by an Executive Committee. Legal Task Force Summary (pdf)
