In March, the federal Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) issued a final rule implementing the information blocking prohibition in the 21st Century Cures Act. “Information blocking” refers to activities that unreasonably limit the availability and use of electronic health information (EHI), undermining public and private investments in the nation’s health IT infrastructure and frustrating efforts to use technology to improve healthcare quality and efficiency.

The final rule goes into effect this fall and will impose significant compliance obligations on healthcare stakeholders, including providers, health information technology (HIT) vendors and health information exchanges (HIEs). Noncompliance could trigger serious consequences. For example, HIEs are subject to penalties of up to $1 million for lack of interoperability.

How can you be sure your organization is prepared and compliant when the new rule takes effect? Find out at a new Manatt webinar series, presented in two sector-specific segments, so we can focus on the requirements and obligations of each stakeholder group.
