March National Briefing

Overcoming Barriers to Collaboration Among Behavioral Health and Primary Care Providers

Event Horizontal

Overview

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act’s (HIPAA) Privacy Rule can present barriers to collaboration between behavioral health and primary care providers. However, many of those barriers are more perceived than real. This month’s National Briefing will provide an in-depth look at the obstacles to sharing data between behavioral health and primary care providers. Dayna Matthew, JD, joins us to present an overview of HIPAA barriers and to debunk common misunderstandings about data-sharing under HIPAA. Ms. Matthew will also discuss how providers can better support care teams through integration and information sharing.


Guest Speaker: 
Dayna Matthew, JD, Professor/Associate Dean, University of Colorado Law School

Moderator:
Polly Kurtz, Executive Director, Collaborative Family Healthcare Association
