Go beyond the HIPAA checklists and join a technologist/professional counselor to learn realistic, non-fear based rules of HIPAA compliance, ethics codes on technology, and how we use technology to help clients and ourselves.
Behavioral health clinicians works to foster health in our clients wherever they are in the process, and we need the correct tools to help us do that. Myths abound legally and ethically appropriate ways to meet client desires for email, texting and online video. We hear about the growing pressure to switch to electronic records and many of us already see the value in paperless practices.
This training will take attendees from an exploration to our relationships with technology and "digital confidentiality," through how to appropriately use that technology in our practices, and finally to concrete demonstrations of how to perform the processes required for compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule. All the while, we will learn concrete techniques and tools side-by-side with relevant ethics codes, professional guidelines, and HIPAA Security standards for digital technology in mental health.
