Course Description

While health care providers were focused on fighting the pandemic, HHS finalized regulations implementing the 21st Century Cures Act’s information blocking prohibition. These regulations represent a fundamental shift in how we govern health information, creating compliance risks for hundreds of practices within our organizations that could now constitute “information blocking.” This session will provide an overview of how we got here, the elements of information blocking, the eight exceptions, and practical tips for implementing an information blocking compliance program.
