Broad Overview: This training program will start with a high-level overview of the full HIPAA Security compliance process explained in language that makes sense to mental health professionals, while also exploring the “low-hanging fruit” of compliance activities. Handouts will be used to guide attendees to further resources.
Next, attendees will be introduced to methods and best practices for choosing appropriate telemental health technology that is both HIPAA-secure and effective for the solo or small mental health practice.
The training will transition into an overview of essential legal-ethical telemental health considerations including jurisdictional issues and emerging telemental health standards, with a focus on Oregon psychologists, counselors/therapists, and clinical social workers.
