HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2—Medications for Opioid Use Disorders in Prisons and Jails

Learn how the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records (42 CFR Part 2) apply to medications for opioid use disorder in correctional entities, especially jails, prisons, and detention centers. This webinar, led by national experts at the Center of Excellence for Protected Health Information, will provide an overview of federal health privacy laws and guide participants through common scenarios in which patient information may or may not be shareable. Presenters will describe information needed for determining the proper course of action and will respond to questions from participants.

This webinar is designed for anyone working in or with correctional facilities who may have access to health records, such as substance use treatment providers, mental health treatment providers, correctional administrators, correctional medical providers, community medical providers, and anyone who interacts with health records involving medications for substance use disorder.
