The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released a three-minute YouTube video about how the agency is working to help patients by "unlocking" their health care information -- helping them understand their digital health care footprint.

This guide explores various issues in the fine print of the contracts for electronic health record systems, such as system performance, data rights, interoperability and transition issues. It's in a PDF format, with more than 50 pages.

The playbook is a digital guide that offers answers to common questions: How do I choose, implement or upgrade an electronic health record (EHR) system? How do I redesign workflows to improve and optimize practice efficiency and effectiveness? How can I connect and share information with other providers and public health officials? How do I protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of personal health information in my EHR system?
