Research in New York

New York has established the State Research Council to guide state health research efforts. The Council’s duties include disseminating information generated by health research programs. 1

New York authorizes the release of confidential health information for research purposes in certain circumstances. For example, the department of health may release information from Alzheimer’s disease reports for research purposes so long as researchers sign a confidentiality agreement2 and the Health Research Science Board may release pesticide sales and use information to researchers that comply with certain procedures.3
