Mental health institutions will have to share their data with the government, but they won’t have to pay to access it.
The Federal Data Retention Act requires the National Institute of Mental Health to share the information with any organization that wants it.
As a result, there will be a requirement for organizations to pay up for the data that they use to diagnose and treat mental illness.
The Act also includes provisions for a data sharing agreement that will give mental health institutions a shared set of data that will be available for the government to analyze, which can include everything from patient records to medical records.
Mental health groups have been working with the Department of Health and Human Services to craft the data sharing rules and hope to have them published in the coming months.
The government will be able to access and use the data for the purposes of research, public health, or other purposes.
But as the law says, agencies won’t be allowed to use the information to make policy recommendations.
It’s important to note that the Department will be allowed, for example, to use a patient’s medical record for research purposes if that records contains information on the patient’s mental illness and it was acquired for that purpose.
This could be a very important distinction.
The data sharing requirements are the same for the National Institutes of Health, which provides some of the data used to diagnose mental illness, as well as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which also conducts research on mental health.
