Drug and Alcohol Law: Confidentiality Requirements for Hospitals and 2021 Updates Webinar

Date: 10/5/2021, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

This webinar will cover the law on Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records under 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 2. This law was previously known as the confidentiality of drug abuse and alcohol abuse records. The new law became effective in 2017 with further updates established on February 2, 2018. Additional revisions to the law occurred in 2020 leaving many hospitals struggling to determine how to meet and maintain compliance. This session will assist hospitals in providing clarity to what should be included in policies and procedures, even for hospitals that do not have dedicated units to treat patients with substance abuse disorders, in order to achieve compliance with the law. Finally, the webinar will also discuss patient access to medical records and what must be in the consent form, research, closure of a program, new definitions, minors, deceased patient records, security of medical records, disclosure, when disclosure is prohibited, and more.
