The exchange of electronic health records is a key component of health care reform, but strong privacy laws and the absence of federal funding makes adoption challenging for the behavioral health field.  The D.C. Behavioral Health Association has been invited to join the District of Columbia's Health Information Exchange Steering Committee.  As the sole representative of the behavioral health field, DCBHA will strive to ensure that D.C. tackles and resolves the barriers to implementation of eletronic records in the behavioral health field.
