(Recorded Webinar) Protecting Patient Information Related to Substance Use Disorders: Determining if 42 CFR Part 2 Applies and How to Comply (September 2017)

In February 2017 the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) issued a Final Rule updating the protections for patient substance use disorder information under 42 CFR Part 2. These protections, collectively referred to as “Part 2”, apply to federally assisted “programs” that provide substance use disorder diagnosis, treatment or referral, as well to “lawful holders” of information protected by Part 2. The Part 2 requirements are separate from and more restrictive than the HIPAA Privacy Rule protections. This webinar will help health centers determine whether Part 2 applies and will highlight compliance requirements related to key Part 2 compliance concerns, including patient consent and records management.
