Psychotherapy Notes: tomorrow in LA (I think) and across the internet, HHS is hosting a webinar to discuss whether test data should be included in the definition of "psychotherapy notes" under HIPAA. Psychotherapy notes get special treatment under HIPAA; the patient doesn't have access to them as part of an individual's right to access their medical records, and they are subject to some other restrictions. The HITECH Act required HHS to study whether the definition should be expanded to include test results from mental health evaluations, and this webinar, conducted in connection with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, is part of that process. If you want to take part, check in here.
