In March 2019, the Department of Health and Human Services issued proposed rules to give providers and patients access to the electronic data stored in EHRs and health plans.

These rules require specific technology (APIs using the HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, or FHIR) to be built into all EHRs for providers. Using this technology, vendors can build applications to access EHRs from providers and get specific clinical data for use by other providers and by patients.

Proposed rules also require certain Medicare, Medicaid, and Exchange health plans to implement this same technology and make claims data available to patients. This should enable individuals to build their own Personal Health Records and share them with providers and caregivers.

The aim is to improve the coordination of care among providers, increase the quality of care for patients, and give patients more control of their own data.

As well, the rules prohibit information blocking by vendors. All of this will require major changes to vendor products, providers business operations, and health plans.

This webinar will provide specific details as to the requirements for vendors, providers, and health plans.

Why should you Attend: New Federal requirements will mean major upgrades and changes to EHRs, physician practices, hospital operations, and health plan data exchange.

Proposed rules issued in March specify specific technology and data requirements for the exchange of electronic information.

Providers must work closely with their EHR vendors to assure they meet these new requirements or face penalties and reductions in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements.
