K&L Gates Triage: The Preventing Harm Exception to the ONC Information Blocking Rule

Date: 2 October 2020

In this week’s episode, Gina Bertolini, Lindsey Rogers-Seitz and Maggie Power discuss the Preventing Harm Exception to the Information Blocking Rule, which was recently finalized in the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) final rule implementing the Interoperability, Health IT Certification and Information Blocking requirements under the 21st Century Cures Act. The presenters begin by providing some general background on the ONC Information Blocking Rule, then discuss how the Preventing Harm Exception may protect certain lawful practices engaged in by health care providers that may otherwise constitute information blocking under the new Information Blocking Rule.
