Information Blocking Considerations for Providers Under the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule

Date: 17 December 2020

In this week’s episode, Gina Bertolini discusses two important aspects of the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule that directly relate to health care providers, and how those aspects of the Final Rule will intersect with health care providers’ obligations under the ONC Information Blocking Rule. Specifically, Gina discusses CMS’ public reporting requirements for clinicians and hospitals who make attestations under the CMS Promoting Interoperability Program related to information blocking, and the new Medicare Condition of Participation which will require hospitals to send electronic patient event notifications in certain instances.
