In this tutorial, I review the most pressing legal issues that health information systems (IS) professionals face and how health information technology (IT) legislation drive them. The issues I discuss include the confidentiality and security of electronic protected health information, meaningful use of health IT, health information exchanges, and information governance. I also provide directions for future research.
