Recently, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services finalized changes to regulations on the confidentiality of alcohol and drug abuse patient records (42 CFR Part 2) to facilitate health integration and information exchange among healthcare organizations while continuing to protect the privacy and confidentiality of patients. The updated law applies to all records related to the identity, diagnosis, prognosis or treatment of any patient in a substance abuse program that is conducted, regulated, or directly or indirectly assisted by any department or agency of the United States.
To assist members in complying with the many requirements of this law, the MHA Health Foundation is offering the webinar Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records: Complying with the New Federal Law. This offering will provide participants with important insight on the law’s impact on healthcare providers.
The webinar is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon May 16, and MHA members may register for a connection fee of $195. Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
