The National Criminal Justice Association is conducting a webinar on Justice-to-Health Exchanges-Understanding the Myths Surrounding HIPAA and Addressing Challenges to Cross-Domain Information Sharing. It will be held on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, 3:00 - 4:30 PM EST.
Register here. There is no fee to attend in 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.
By the end of this session attendees will:
- Understand and dispel the "myths" surrounding HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2;
- Have a greater awareness of how states and local jurisdictions are moving forward with justice to health information exchanges;
- Gain an awareness of the importance of collaborative agreements and where to access example agreements;
- Understand the benefits of using national standards to facilitate these secure information exchanges; and
- Know where to access more information and how to leverage example agreements to advance justice to health exchanges in your state.
