SBIRT in Title X Agencies: Virtual Meeting: Protected Health Information
Family Planning providers have been sensitive to issues of protected health information for many years and adhere to Federal HIPAA regulations. As family planning providers expand their scope of services to include screening, referral and/or treatment-related to substance use disorder, it will be important to understand how a patient's medical and treatment history must be documented, protected and maintained. This presentation by the Legal Action Center will address Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 2: Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records.
As a result of this presentation, participants will be able to identify how to properly document and maintain confidential substance use disorder patient records in compliance with Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulation (CFR 42) Part 2
