Health Information Privacy

Connecticut policymakers are making critical decisions about the privacy of sensitive health information and patient's rights to control who accesses their medical records. The new electronic environment offers exciting benefits but greater risks. The CT Health Policy Project is working to guard consumers' rights and inform the public about important decisions that affect our lives.
