If HIPAA rules are sticter than state law, which standard should you follow and why?
This is what I beleive the answer is. Could somebody confirm that I'm at least on the right trail or that this is right or wrong?
The stritest law prevails, whether it's state or federal. However, if the state law conflicts with federal law, then the federal law would prevail.
Thank you for any feedback.
