Hospitals are still struggling to comply with the law on Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records under 42 CFR Part 2 rule. The complicated rule affords special privacy protections to patients seeking treatment for substance abuse. It requires that anyone providing treatment to patients with a substance use disorder must know when to report violations, when special consent forms are needed, and when a minor can consent to treatment. It applies to nurses, physicians, and other healthcare staff that must know when and when not to share sensitive patient information for the purposes of treatment, payment, healthcare operations, and public health reporting. And failure to comply carries severe penalties.
Learn how to overcome the barriers to compliance and avoid penalties in this information-packed webinar by healthcare expert Sue Dill Calloway. Calloway will run through the extensive regulations, and bring you up to speed with the 42 CFR Part 2 rule for Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records. She will walk you through the 2018 changes regarding disclosures, audit, and evaluation, and explain how the 2018 law expands the way the protected health information (PHI) on substance use disorder patients can be shared. She will discuss what is required of Part 2 programs; the two 2018 fact sheets published by HHS; and the 2018 FAQs. You will learn when a minor can consent to the treatment of substance abuse disorder; what must be in the special consent form to release the medical records of a patient treated for substance abuse disorder in a Part 2 program; and when and to whom you should report a violation.
Calloway will also get you clear on some of the trickier compliance requirements healthcare providers like you can (and often do) face, such as:
