Confidentiality and Release of Information Webinar Application of 42 CFR Section 2 in Care Coordination and Service Partnerships
The DMC-ODS Forum of the California Institute for Behavioral
Health Solutions (CIBHS) hosted a 90-minute Webinar providing an
approach to the use of consents to facilitate sharing client
information with partner agencies in the DMC-ODS.
The Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) Waiver
requires the management of access and utilization of services in
a well-designed continuum of care. The key to this coordination
is the sharing of participant information between agencies within
the DMC-ODS and external service partners. The federal
regulations impose stringent restrictions on the disclosure of
identifiable participant records by federally assisted alcohol
and drug treatment programs. Bruce Copley will present Santa
Clara County’s approach to the use of consents to facilitate
sharing client information with partner agencies in the DMC-ODS.
Key legal issues and considerations will be discussed. A
downloadable power point and sample Release of Information Form
will be available to all registrants.
