Managing behavioral health and substance abuse patients in an HIE


KHIN has been sharing behavioral health and substance abuse treatment information among its member organizations using a process approved by the National Council of Community Mental Health Centers and reviewed by SAMHSA. KHIN identifies which members have patients that meet the 42 CFR Part 2 regulations and should have their data restricted and under what circumstances a patients’ data can be disclosed due to patient consent or life threatening emergency. KHIN and its members work together to develop a clear understanding of 42 C.F.R Part 2 in order to manage patients’ identifiable health information related to substance abuse treatment. Understanding this regulation is needed to protect patients, KHIN and its members.
