Subpoena Compliance: Releasing Protected Health Information
CHIA Product Code: PUB535
Publisher: California Health Information Association (CHIA)
Published: March 2012
This edition of the Subpoena Compliance: Releasing Protected Health Information publication reflects changes in state and federal subpoena regulations since 2005. In February 2009, President Obama signed The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). ARRA included funding for Health Information Technology and tightening of privacy and security for Health Information Management in general. Breach notification requirements also were tightened as a result of ARRA. The California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (California Civil Code § 56 et seq.) has numerous updates and additions since the last publication of this manual. The California Code of Civil Procedure § 1985.8 was added to the code in 2009 allowing electronically stored information to be subpoenaed. Many other state and federal laws were repealed or revised and this publication updates those sections affected by those repeals and revisions.
