SAMHSA guidance that demonstrates how Part 2 applies to the electronic exchange of healthcare records with Part 2 programs. The guidance includes examples of health information exchanges and illustrates how Part 2 applies to disclosure of patient health information in each scenario.

  • Part 2 consent forms must include certain information, including but not limited to the name of the patient, the names of individuals/entities that are permitted to disclose or receive patient identifying information, the amount and kind of the information being disclosed, and the purpose of the disclosure.
