This CLE course will provide guidance to counsel for navigating regulatory changes for substance use treatment. The panel will examine compliance issues and best practices for entities within the healthcare system that create or receive protected substance use disorder information, including Part 2 programs, hospitals and other healthcare providers, as well as health information organizations and other entities involved in data integration and exchange.


For the first time in over 20 years, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) substantively revised regulations under 42 CFR Part 2, Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records (the Part 2 regulations).

The revised regulations went into effect in March 2017. The revised regulations continue to provide enhanced privacy protections to individuals suffering from substance use disorders, while striving to better facilitate communication between providers, patients and health plans.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines the new regulations and the impact for different programs and organizations, including substance abuse treatment programs and health systems that do not operate a Part 2 program. The panel will offer best practices for complying with the new regulations and overcoming the barriers to data exchange and integration created by the new regulations.

  3. Impact on Part 2 programs and other lawful holders of patient identifying information
  4. Hurdles to physical and behavioral health integration and data exchange
  5. Best practices for compliance with 42 C.F.R. Part 2


The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • What challenges due the Part 2 regulations pose for the integration of physical and behavioral health information and data exchange?
  • What are the best practices for compliance with the Part 2 regulations.
