The Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights recently issued guidance on the HIPAA Privacy Rule and sharing information related to mental health. Learn from experts in health information privacy about this new guidance, including privacy protections for mental health records and psychotherapy notes and circumstances in which the Privacy Rule permits providers to share patients’ information with others. Presenters will discuss when family, friends, and others involved in care can access treatment information, when law enforcement and other professionals need to know information, and circumstances when other laws may apply – such as where drug and alcohol abuse treatment facilities and schools are involved.
