Would you benefit from better understanding the regulations around appropriate release and exchange of health information?

Altarum, with funding from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund, created new resources to help clinicians, providers, payers, and others navigate complex health information laws in Michigan. The new resources aim to reduce confusion about when an individual’s consent is necessary to share health information, increase communication between providers, and improve care coordination across the state of MI.

This webinar will introduce attendees to the new Protected Health Information (PHI) Consent Tool. The tool utilizes the most up-to-date legislation to guide users in deciding whether consent is necessary to share behavioral health information. Webinar attendees will gain a better understanding of regulations surrounding the release of behavioral health PHI, the tool, and how it can be used to improve the continuity and safety of care as well as reduce costs across Michigan. Clinicians, payers, and medical records/front line administrative staff are encouraged to attend.
