This webinar will discuss the 21st Century Cures Act (the Cures Act); how it was designed to improve patient access to medical records and promote seamless communication across healthcare providers. The speakers will focus on the strict rules prohibiting information blocking, which can interfere with, prevent, or discourage access, exchange, or use of Electronic Health Information (EHI). This webinar will explain how information blocking regulations do not mandate healthcare providers to adopt or use specific technologies or platforms to make EHI available for access, exchange, or use. The speakers will describe the range of technologies and platforms available to share patient data. They will also provide examples of how some health IT vendors may be prohibiting certain technologies or charging users punitive fees to discourage use of certain technologies, activities which may constitute information blocking.
The audience will gain an understanding of the Cures Act, as well as responsibilities and opportunities available to laboratories as a result of the law. The talk will provide the audience with information needed to comply with information blocking regulations, inform them of ways health IT vendors may be performing information blocking, and the appropriate actions labs may take to address potential information blocking activity.
