A Message to the CHITREC Community Regarding Our COVID-19 Actions

An Introduction to Information Blocking for Health Care Providers

The Office of the National Coordinator’s (ONC) 21st Century Cures Act puts patients in charge of their health records through updated health IT certification criteria and a prohibition on “information blocking.”

By preventing unreasonable interference with the access, use, and exchange of electronic health information, the ONC seeks to promote innovation, competition, and choice, and to deliver transparency on the cost and outcomes of care through convenient access to records.

Join us for a webinar to learn more about the 21st Century Cures Act and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) complementary Interoperability and Patient Access rule, with a focus on considerations for the April 5th compliance date for information-blocking provisions.
