Center of Excellence for Protected Health Information (CoE-PHI)

Cicatelli Associates Inc. in partnership with the Legal Action Center (LAC) received a five years grant from SAMHSA in order to establish one National Center of Excellence.

The Center of Excellence will develop and disseminate training, technical assistance, and educational resources for healthcare practitioners, families, individuals, states, and communities on various privacy laws and regulations as they relate to information about mental and substance use disorders.

These include: the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and 42 CFR Part 2. This Center of Excellence will also address the intersection of these laws and regulations with other privacy laws such as the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
