This webinar will cover the new law on confidentiality of substance use disorder patient records under 42 CFR part 2. The webinar will discuss what is required of part 2 programs. A facility that receives federal assistance (such as Medicare) and hold itself out as providing substance use disorder diagnosis, treatment, or referral must follow these extensive regulations. They address the notice that must be given to the patient. It discusses patient access to medical records and what must be in the consent form. It discusses research, closure of a program, new definitions, minors, decease patient records, security of medical records, disclosure, when disclosure is prohibited and more. 

 If a patient is admitted to a hospital to the substance use disorder treatment floor, are you up to speed on how to comply with the many requirements of this law? What is the responsibility if the patient being treated for drug or alcohol abuse discloses he or she has abused their children? When can minors consent to treatment? When can the parents of a minor get access to their records? What if the patient commits a crime on the property? All of these questions will be answered in this webinar.

This program is a must-attend for any hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid since they must be in compliance with the Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) section of the CMS worksheet. This program will also cover the revised QAPI standards, including the high number of patient safety deficiencies.
 
The CMS QAPI worksheet is an excellent communication tool so a hospital will know what to expect from CMS. The worksheet is used by State and Federal surveyors on all survey activity in hospitals when assessing compliance with the QAPI standards. QAPI is an important issue to CMS and an increased area of focus in 2017. This program will also highlight the patient safety deficiencies that hospitals have received in this area as well.
