The Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights has revamped its health information privacy Web site.

The site has long had a variety of information about the HIPAA privacy rule. Now, it has added content on the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act and the privacy provisions in the rules that implemented the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act.

For consumers, there also is new information covering such areas as medical records, personal representatives, health information in the workplace, court orders and subpoenas, and notices of privacy practices.

More information is available at hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/index.html.
