Privacy Webinar to Clarify Disclosures for Patients With Mental Health, Substance Use Issues
CMIA, LPS and HIPAA explained in practical terms

CHA will hold a webinar Sept. 11 from 10 a.m. – noon (PT) to help providers understand the numerous and complicated laws governing privacy for patients with mental health and substance use disorders. Participants will hear how the law applies to common situations facing health care providers and gain an understanding of what can and can’t be said to other providers, payers, family and friends. Faculty includes CHA’s Lois Richardson, vice president of privacy and legal publications/education, and Sheree Kruckenberg, vice president of behavioral health. The operational perspective will be presented by Dignity Health attorney Jana Aagaard, who specializes in health care law with a focus in health information privacy and technology, and clinical research.
