Announcing the PHI Consent Tool Video Series

Published: 1/8/2021 –

In 2019, The Michigan Health Endowment commissioned Altarum to develop the PHI Consent Tool to help providers navigate the complexity of consent and confidentiality regulations around the release and exchange of protected health information (PHI).

The new PHI Consent Tool Video Series is designed to complement the PHI Consent Tool and to help Michigan stakeholders better understand how to navigate the Tool. It also covers complex scenarios such as PHI sharing in the cases of domestic violence, substance use information, and minor’s PHI.

The new video series and the updated PHI Consent Tool, which now includes references to the most recent legislative changes, including the CARES Act, are available on the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ website:
