Legal Analysis

A key responsibility of health information professionals is examining release of information (ROI) requests for accuracy and validity. Using your print screens, and spreadsheet from Steps One and Two, analyze each request and indicate whether or not they are valid and should be released to the requester.
Finally, in your own words, present a brief legal and ethical analysis (2-3 paragraphs) of your findings—from the perspective of a health information management professional—about the disclosure (particularly to a third party) of medical records to third parties, methodologies to check for validity, reasonable fees, etc. Incorporate at least one legislative act, statute, regulation, etc. into your analysis.
