The State of Oregon is committed to a patient's right to have protected health information safeguarded from unlawful use or disclosure and the individual's right to access and review their information. The Oregon legislature's passage of HB 2305 in 2003, created new provisions; amending ORS 197.667, 353.117, 433.009, 433.096, 433.280, 441.117 and 634.550, repealed ORS 192.525 and formalized the state's policy regarding the additional rights and obligations provided under the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA).
