HHS developed the HIPAA Rules to protect individuals’ health information privacy and security interests, while permitting information sharing needed for important purposes. However, in recent years, HHS has heard calls to revisit aspects of the Rules that may limit or discourage information sharing needed for coordinated care or to facilitate the transformation to value-based health care.
The questionnaire requests information on how any HIPAA provisions may present obstacles to these goals without meaningfully contributing to the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI) and/or patients’ ability to exercise their rights with respect to their PHI.
This full time position will work in a team environment with NAADAC staff, NAADAC leadership, the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) Advisory Committee, and the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) Foundation.
The MFP is a fellowship program for students working toward a Master’s degree in the addiction field and committed to working with underserved populations. The MFP Manager will be responsible for serving as the main contact between NAADAC and the NBCC Foundation and overseeing the performance of all services and production deliverables by NAADAC.
This program is made possible by a grant awarded to the NBCC Foundation in collaboration with NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The program will administer up to 40 Master’s degree-level counseling fellowships of $15,000 for addictions counseling students, plus the travel expenses to participate in other program-related trainings.
The 2018 MTF survey results show that while opioid misuse is at a record low, teen vaping use is at an all-time high.
