The New Interoperability Framework: Challenges, Strategies and Best Practices

What New Obligations Do Health Plans and States Face Under the Latest Interoperability Requirements—and What’s the Best Path to Compliance? Learn the Answer at a New Manatt Webinar.

Historically, privacy rules have focused on ensuring that health plans and state Medicaid programs do not inappropriately share their data. With the exception of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) right of access, these rules gave plans and states the discretion to withhold data. The framework changed, however, when the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the interoperability rule in 2020. Now plans must engage in more extensive efforts to share their data with both their enrollees and other parties. These obligations may expand even further with new interoperability requirements that the Trump administration issued in its final days.

What legal obligations will plans and states face under the new requirements? And what are the most effective strategies to ensure compliance? A new Manatt webinar shares the answers. Key topics covered include:

  • An overview of the new obligations for health plans and state Medicaid programs to make their data available to others
  • The government’s vision of increased data sharing via apps and other means
  • Important challenges that the rule raises around the availability of clinical data
  • Additional requirements set forth in the Medicaid prior authorization rule
  • Strategies and best practices for achieving compliance with the rule
