Public Health Departments and State Patient Confidentiality Laws Map

On October 1, the Public Health Management Corporation, a member of the National Network of Public Health Institutes, released new data that provides state-by-state information on statutes and regulations on the use, release, and reporting of personal health information for certain communicable diseases. The Public Health Departments and State Patient Confidentiality Laws Map is designed to help health departments effectively promote STD prevention by strengthening collaboration between programs and supporting appropriate service integration while continuing to protect the confidentiality of health information, an approach endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called Program Collaboration and Service Integration. Please contact Ms. Jamie Ware, of the Public Health Management Corporation, with any questions at jware@nncc.us.
