42 CFR Part 2: Understanding the New Final Rules and Where We Go From Here

Description: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has released two final rules on 42 CFR Part 2 in the past year. This webinar will help you understand the new changes, how they affect your business, and compare them with the HIPAA privacy rule. We will also discuss what more needs to be done to ensure providers have appropriate access to substance use disorder records in order to coordinate patients’ care and treat persons with substance use disorders safely and effectively.
