Registered students at the College of Law will receive one hour of credit for participating in the colloquium; other interested participants are welcome to join us. A small reception with light refreshments will be held after each session. Visit the Center’s webpage to learn more about the Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences.

Patient Privacy and Law Enforcement Access

3:10-5:10 p.m., S.J. Quinney College of Law, Room 4609
Health systems and providers have a legal obligation to protect the confidentiality of their patients and patient information. Health care providers, especially those in large health centers, interact with law enforcement on a daily basis in the course of providing care to patients. In the vast majority of those encounters, the two sets of professionals work together effectively. The legal issues around law enforcement access to patients and patient information can be quite complicated. The presentation will discuss the legal issues as well as how one system moved beyond riveting video toward a more effective policy to recognize the interests of all involved.
