Understanding the New Changes to 42 CFR Part 2
Thursday, July 23rd | 3:30 PM (ET)
(registration will be capped at 1000)
PHI regulations protect patient privacy, give you flexibility to provide the best possible treatment, and help clarify the boundaries in protecting and sharing patient information. 
On July 15, 2020, SAMHSA finalized changes to 42 CFR Part 2 ("Part 2"), the regulations for the Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records. These changes will go into effect August 14, 2020.

On Thursday, July 23rd at 3:30PM ET, the Center of Excellence for Protected Health Information will facilitate a free national webinar outlining the recently announced changes to Part 2. 

Webinar Objectives: 
  • Describe the recent changes to Part 2 and new guidance from SAMHSA
  • Outline the CARES Act changes to the federal SUD privacy law, 42 USC 290dd-2
  • Distinguish the difference between recent changes to Part 2 and those forthcoming through the CARES Act
  • Identify how to access resources and TA provided by the CoE-PHI
Who Should Attend?
SUD and MH treatment providers, patients and consumers, administrators, state agency leaders, and others involved in providing SUD treatment
