Florida bans international storage of electronic health records

The Florida legislature has passed an update to the Florida Electronic Health Records Exchange Act that bans the storage of electronic health records outside of the United States, its territories and Canada, according to a June 2 report from HIPAA Journal.

Healthcare practitioners covered by the act must stop use of overseas vendors that require access to patient information, as the update also bans the access, retrieval and transmission of patient data that doesn't comply with the new law by July 1.
