Momentum is building toward the integration of primary and behavioral health care in various models and forms. The potential benefits of such integrated delivery systems include improved access to care, enhanced quality and outcomes, better population health management, and decreased health care costs. Sharing and exchange of patient information and collaboration among providers are essential to successful integration. The federal substance abuse confidentiality regulations (42 CFR Part 2) are widely considered a key barrier to critical information exchange. During this presentation, an expert panel will examine the legal requirements for use and disclosure of Part 2 patient information, the ins and outs of sharing protected information within an integrated delivery system, and the practical challenges of using Part 2 information in Electronic Health Records and Health Information Exchanges.
