Incorporating Behavioral Health Data into Primary Care Records

Have you as a behavioral health provider begun to wonder how behavioral healthcare data is going to be incorporated into general health records?

Well, the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) is working on that issue and would like you and anyone else who is interested to attend a webinar on the subject.

Webinar: Integrating Behavioral Health Data into HIEs

Join ONC and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration for a free webinar about the benefits of integrating behavioral health data into Health Information Exchanges (HIEs). The webinar begins Wednesday, Dec. 16 and focuses on how these data are being integrated into primary care systems in a way that ensures the privacy and confidentiality of this sensitive information. You can sign up for the webinar, which will run from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. (EST), here:

This is certainly a sensitive issue that requires careful thought and the right technology before it can work well. I will look forward to some discussion on this topic after the webinar. Let me know if you attend.
