Nov 13, 19 SAMHSA Webinar: Electronic Health Records and You

Your Unique Perspective is Important

SAMHSA is seeking your experience in navigating treatment and recovery. You are our key to success in promoting patient rights for the Behavioral Health community. Your voices and stories are important.

As SAMHSA moves forward with our Health Information Technology (HIT) Initiative, we will need the feedback of the behavioral health recovery community concerning issues around Electronic Health Records. What is important to you in your Electronic Health Record? 

We would like to open dialogue with you in a series of webinars to better understand your perspectives and opinions on the following issues:

  • Protecting your rights when using an Electronic Health Record
  • Using Electronic Health Records and Personal Health Records to increase patient engagement
  • Your concerns about sharing your behavioral health information with State, regional, or National health information exchanges
  • How tools, such as social networks and apps, can be used to help people in recovery manage their care


We look forward to hearing back from you. We need your help to promote patient empowerment while safeguarding confidentiality and privacy.
