The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) announced a new site, called Meaningful Consent, to address laws, policies, and issues related to health information exchange (HIE). The Meaningful Consent site contains background, lessons learned, videos, and customizable tools from the eConsent pilot project. The eConsent pilot project tested the use of tablet computers to educate patients about available options to share health information through HIE. HHS created the information on this site for providers, certain health information organizations, and other implementers of health information technology.
