Healthcare Data Privacy: Regulatory Investigation and Litigation Readiness

In theory, the advent of electronic files should make the acquisition and organization of information easier. However, it’s important to take into account that the limitless nature of e-files means that files may contain an excess of information.

Once filed, this information wil...
