VTHIMA 2022 Virtual Annual Meeting – Cures Act, Information Blocking Rules

This presentation will break down the core components of the regulation, including background, regulated actors, key definitions, and the reasonable and necessary exceptions to information sharing.

Overview

The 21st Century Cures Act Interoperability and Information Blocking Final Rule, released by the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) in May of 2020, represents a paradigm shift in how health care providers, health information networks, and developers of certified health IT think about when and how to make electronic health information available. This presentation will break down the core components of the regulation, including background, regulated actors, key definitions, and the reasonable and necessary exceptions to information sharing. It will also discuss policies around enforcement, outline best practices for building a compliance plan, and review what we can expect in 2022 and beyond.
