Understanding the Information Blocking Rules

OnDemand Webinar (59 minutes)

Gain a better understanding of the Information Blocking Rule and tips for compliance.The Information Blocking Rule, which was promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services under the 21st Cures Act, is one of the most significant developments in health care regulation since the passage of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. By promoting health information liquidity, the rule lays the foundation for a mobile health application ecosystem that will finally allow individuals in the U.S. to access and aggregate their health information as easily as they use banking apps to access their financial information. This program will explain the objectives of the Information Blocking Rule and define what constitutes prohibited information blocking. It will also address what information must be provided to patients and the narrow exceptions to the rule. Additionally, we will discuss the very significant penalties for violations by certified technology developers and disincentives that may be imposed on health care providers. Attendees will leave the program with a practical understanding of the Information Blocking Rule and tips for compliance that they can apply to their operations.
