TA Coalition Webinar: Myths and Reality: The HIPAA Privacy Rule

Description:  HIPAA is a privacy rule intended to safeguard private health information, but is often misinterpreted and misapplied. With better understanding of flexibility within HIPAA, mental health stakeholders can promote both individuals’ privacy rights and appropriate inclusion of families/partners and providers.

This webinar will feature various scenarios that illustrate both commonly-held misperceptions about HIPAA, as well as more complex issues.  It will address such topics as communications among health providers, disclosures to caregivers, rights of people to access information about their own treatment, special rules pertaining to mental health and substance use information, and other important topics.
