Privacy and Integrated Behavioral Health: Special Considerations Under HIPAA and Part 2

An educational webinar of the Greater Houston Behavioral Health Affordable Care Act Initiative

Questions about confidentiality often arise when integrating behavioral health care with primary care. Sharing patient/client information among health care providers in an integrated setting is often quite permissible, yet many misconceptions exist about what data can and cannot be shared.

This webinar will help correct such misconceptions and provide clarity about the regulations for sharing mental health and substance use information. Marshall Preddy, JD, Associate General Counsel and Privacy Officer with Lone Star Circle of Care, will provide precise yet comprehensive information about how the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and 42 Code of Federal Regulations Part 2 (42 CFR Part 2) apply to sharing mental health and substance use information in integrated health care settings.

Mr. Preddy presented on this topic at a BHACA event last November.  One audience member, an executive from The Council on Alcohol and Drugs Houston, stated, "Thank you so much for bringing Marshall Preddy to speak to us.  I feel like I finally have the correct information on this issue that is so complex but so crucial to our work."  Because Mr. Preddy's presentation was so well-received in November, we asked him to present again via webinar.
