In March 2020, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) released regulations that have far-reaching implications for the health care system. These two rules implement interoperability and information blocking provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act and aim to empower patients by facilitating access to individual medical data in order to make informed health care decisions. While the original applicability timeframe was pushed back due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, many provisions go into effect in April of this year - less than two months from today.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- The impact of the regulations on the health care system
- Key stakeholder concerns and considerations
- Implementing the required FHIR-based interoperability solutions
- Timeline for compliance
