From GCN:

“You could look at all the state laws in all jurisdictions that are involved and come up with so many potential conflicts that it would take you forever to resolve them,” Christensen said. “Are they actually getting in the way, or is it the way people interpret those laws, or are there other things that they are doing in the name of privacy and security that aren’t even based on law or regulations?”

HHS and AHIC's CCPSG (American Health Information Community’s Confidentiality, Privacy and Security Work Group) are working on a project to smooth out some of the inconsistancies in privacy and security. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out.
