Statewide Health Information Policy Manual (SHIPM). Documents Version 6/2023

CalOHII developed the Statewide Health Information Policy Manual (SHIPM) to provide State Departments with a resource that:

  • Provides guidance on how to protect patient privacy while promoting coordinated care,
  • Promotes uniform interpretation and application of health information laws including those relating to security, patients’ rights, and transactions and code sets, and
  • Helps state entities avoid fines and sanctions resulting from unauthorized disclosures of health information.
