Mental health providers are so busy helping others that we often find
ourselves flirting with trouble in terms of confidentiality and all that it
entails. Do we understand just what “confidential communication” is?
What is and is not the “Mental Health record?” Who gets to see the mental
health record and who does not? What are “personal notes” and who can see
them? What about HIPAA and what must we absolutely do with our electronic
data? Are we using release of information forms appropriately? In this interview,
Attorney Jonathan Nye, will provide helpful and legal guidance to answer these questions and many more to help you protect your patients and your practice.
