Office for Health Information Technology



Legal Work Group

  • The LWG comprises representatives from health systems, advocacy groups, and professional associations; brought together to address emerging legal issues raised by designing and implementing electronic Health Information Technology (HIT) and Exchanges (HIEs). First convened in 2009 by the Director of the Office of the State Coordinator of HIT (OSC), the LWG analyzes specific issues recommended for review by the OSC (and its designated groups), and develops recommendations to help guide the implementation of HIT and HIEs in the state of Maine, ensuring the privacy and security of health information in the context of Health Information Technology and HIEs.
