The Minnesota Legal Reference Manual is a manual containing information on key aspects of the Health Information Management (HIM) world in Minnesota. There are currently 14 Chapters that address a variety of HIM related topics. While focusing primarily on the legal issues within HIM, the manual also includes best practice guidelines for the handling of medical information.

The manual is reviewed continuously for updates and revisions by the Legal Reference Manual Committee as well as a team of legal professionals. The Legal Manual Committee is made up of HIM professionals from different facilities and companies across the state, each bringing their own expertise and experience to the table. This creates a wide body of knowledge from all areas of HIM.
