03/24/2015 : Justice-to-Health Exchanges: Understanding the Myths Surrounding Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Addressing Challenges to Cross-Domain Information Sharing - ,

About this webinar: Criminal justice leaders recognize the need to exchange justice and health information to ensure the continuity of care for justice-involved individuals. However, fears and misconceptions about federal and state privacy laws have led many to believe that it is difficult (if not impossible) to create information exchanges between these domains. This webinar will dispel the “myths” surrounding HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2 and showcase how states and jurisdictions are overcoming barriers to create safe and secure justice to health exchanges that comply with patient privacy protections. During this 90 minute webinar, Kate Tipping, JD, public health advisor, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Richard Fiore, ASSURE Project sponsor, State of Alabama; and Becki Goggins, director, law and policy, SEARCH will provide an overview of these efforts at the state and national level and lead a facilitated discussion. Who Should Attend: State justice leaders, policymakers and interested justice information sharing practitioners.
