Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule 101
The CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule was published in May 2020, as part of the 21st Century Cures Act. But many in healthcare don’t fully understand what it is, how to comply with it, and how it differs from its sister rule — the Interoperability, Information Blocking and ONC Health IT Certification Program. This final rule’s goal is to give patients access to their health information. They can then share this access with other clinicians and third-party apps, increasing the data’s portability. CMS begins enforcing this rule in July, 2021, yet there are no off-the-shelf solutions for healthcare organizations to use. This proposed session will share context and background for the rule, explain who must comply, what’s needed to comply, and how to comply.
- Understand the context and background of the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule.
- Learn what healthcare systems are required to do to comply.
- Learn how to set up a plan for compliance.
