New HHS Website Explains, Advocates for "Meaningful" Patient Consent for Data Exchange

The site provides resources for understanding requirements for patient consent as well as tools to help patient consent be informed and meaningful. The information on the site reflects regulatory changes going into effect Sept. 23 as part of the HIPAA omnibus rule.
