CONDIT PRIVACY BILL "HEALTH TRUSTEE" CATEGORIES ARE "TOO COMPLICATED,"
CONDIT PRIVACY BILL "HEALTH TRUSTEE" CATEGORIES ARE "TOO COMPLICATED," health care providers and information specialists told the House Government Operations/Information Subcommittee May 4. The categories are included in panel Chairman Condit's (D- Calif.) Fair Health Information Practices Act (HR 4077), which may be considered as an amendment to health care reform legislation. Introduced March 17, the bill would establish uniform federal rules applying to covered health information and impose civil and criminal penalties on violators ("The Pink Sheet" April 11, p. 6).
