The legal health record is a term used in the health care industry defining the set of records used to respond to legal requests. These “record sets” are part of the overall structure of information governance and are impacted by changing laws, such as the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA). This presentation will consist of a non-legalese discussion of legal requests and eDiscovery and provide solutions for handling such requests. Examples will include cataloging and inventorying through data management to allow faster and easier access to the information needed to respond to these requests. This presentation is not specific to detailed California state law, and will be more oriented towards impactful generalized rules, such as legal holds, subpoenas and court ordered activities to support eDiscovery.

Attendees will discover:

  • General structure and foundations of legal health records from a health care perspective;
  • How data management processes, such as data cataloging and inventorying support responding effectively and timely to legal requests for information; and
  • What is required to be proactively ready for unexpected legal requests.
