 Confidentiality of Substance Abuse  Patient Records

  ABH Training

Wednesday, May 31, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Presented by David S. Szabo, Locke Lord LLP

On January 18, 2017, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration issued a Final Rule on the confidentiality of substance use disorder patient records, 42 CFR Part 2.   Although its implementation was delayed, the Final Rule went into effect on March 21, 2017.  ABH is pleased to offer its members the opportunity to learn about the Final Rule and the key changes that were made to these regulations. According to SAMHSA, the changes in the final rule are intended primarily to facilitate the sharing of Part 2 data among providers participating in clinically integrated health care networks that include addiction treatment programs.  The final rule introduced flexibility to the Part 2 consent process and provides patients with more options for designating the types of individuals and entities that may receive protected information. This training will provide the information you and your staff need in order to share patient information with other health care providers without violating this regulation.

Target Audience:  CEOs, Compliance and Privacy Officers, Health Information Directors, Clinical Directors and other staff working with patient records.

Cost: $20 per person, includes coffee.

This event is for ABH Members Only.

Of Note: Event Check-in begins at 12:30 p.m.
