"The past year was an exciting one for SATVA," said Board President Joe Viger, "Our group contributed many educational sessions to the behavioral health community on information technology and electronic health record related topics. Additionally, the SATVA Membership completed a pilot project and draft of an implementation guide for the Data Segmentation for Privacy initiative. This important initiative will help to ensure electronic healthcare communications are compliant with applicable privacy laws. I look forward to working with our board and membership to continue to advance the use of technology in behavioral healthcare."
