what HIPAA allows when discussing drug therapy

There's still confusion about what HIPAA allows when discussing drug therapy...among providers, family, caregivers, etc.

Some technicians are concerned about discussing an Rx over the phone with a doctor's office, someone from another pharmacy, etc.

Health care providers can freely discuss a patient's health info with each other...as long as each one is involved in the patient's treatment. This can be done by fax, phone, etc.
