Member Webinar: Information Blocking and Interoperability Final Rules Are Here: Now What?

Wednesday, March 25th | 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. ET | Webinar

In 2016, the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures) became U.S. law. Cures included landmark provisions to define and promote interoperability; establish or recognize a framework for trusted exchange; revise health IT certification; encourage standards-based, open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and eliminate “information blocking. In March 2019, the U.S. Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued proposed rules to implement Cures provisions and other interoperability policies. These rules were finalized in March 2020. They will dramatically reshape the U.S. interoperability landscape, enabling broader access to data by patients, their designees and providers while creating sweeping new compliance requirements across the U.S. healthcare system. Cures will also provide competitive opportunities for innovative healthcare organizations and health IT developers. This members-only webinar will “connect the dots” and outline practical, implementation-focused implications for key stakeholders impacted by the information blocking and interoperability final rules.
