About the Course:
The Substance Abuse Confidentiality Regulations, 42 CFR Part 2, govern the use and disclosure of alcohol and drug abuse patient records that are maintained at federally funded substance abuse programs. This publication assists with a more complete understanding of these Federal regulations, which were enacted in 1972 and 1975. The FAQs outline the general provisions of 42 CFR Part 2, provide guidance on its application to electronic health records, and identify methods for including substance abuse patient record information into health information exchange that is consistent with the Federal statute.
Note: there is a new version of this course. Please see course 102307.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, FAQs About Applying Substance Abuse Confidentiality Regulations- 42 CFR Part 2 created by SAMHSA
