If you are on the legal team for a health IT developer, a provider of telemedicine, or a company that offers a remote monitoring platform, or if your employer supports health IT companies or healthcare providers, you should be aware of these new rules.

On March 9, 2020, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services published a set of inter-related final rules addressing interoperability, information blocking, standards to support data exchange via secure APIs, electronic health record certification criteria, and patient access to data. 

This webinar will walk participants through the ONC rule, which finalized significant changes to the health IT certification program that will require developers to update to their technology. The Final Rule also clarified how the healthcare industry can prevent information blocking among healthcare providers, health IT developers, exchanges and health information networks.

Among other elements, the webinar will:

  • discuss the different types of entities that are subject to the ONC rule
  • describe updates to the 2015 Edition Health IT Certification criteria  and new conditions and maintenance of certification criteria; and
  • explain the concept of “information blocking” and how ONC intends to enforce it
