California Health Information Law Identification (CHILI) Project

The California Health Information Law Identification (CHILI) website is a continuously-updated online database that allows users to search for specific California statutes and regulations (and their analogous federal provisions in the Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act (HIPAA)) pertaining to the access, privacy, and security of individually-identifiable health information.  The database represents a new model for curating content, for cross-referencing a comprehensive set of laws beyond just HIPAA, and for bringing together case law and new legislation.  It has been designed to reach a wide array of audiences and does not require any special expertise: lay users can employ user-friendly, keyword searches to find laws that are relevant to their inquiries just as readily as lawyers, and health information law experts can use the database to track down specific statutory provisions and any relevant cross-references.


CHILI was developed by the now defunct California Office of Health Information Integrity in association with UC Hastings’s Public Law Research Institute, and is now hosted by the UCSF / UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science & Health Policy.
