The Dept. of Health and Human Services has a website devoted to health information privacy. It is a repository of information for individuals and providers alike. Just about anything you want to know about patient health information (PHI) privacy is there, including how to file a complaint if your rights have been violated.

One aspect of the website that impressed me was the training information offered. Material can be found to educate healthcare providers and state attorney generals on privacy, policies and procedures. Administrators can read up on rules. Physicians can learn how to get continuing medical education credits. And patients can understand about those forms they must sign before seeing a doctor.
