Free the Data! Opportunities and Risks Under the HHS Information Blocking Rule – A Presentation to the Nashville Health Care Council 

by Amy Leopard, Travis Lloyd

Published: November, 2020

Submission: December, 2020

 



The HHS Office for the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology issued an interim final rule on October 29, 2020, extending the compliance date for the information blocking rule under the 21st Century Cures Act to April 5, 2021. The rule establishes conditions under which providers, developers of certified health IT, and health information networks and exchanges may not engage in practices likely to interfere with the access, exchange, or use of electronic health information.

With a firm compliance date, the healthcare industry will need to complete the work necessary to establish new practices for advancing interoperability goals safely and securely.

Last week, Bradley partners Amy Leopard and Travis Lloyd presented to members of the Nashville Health Care Council on the importance of the information blocking rule, the emerging compliance framework, and practical steps industry stakeholders should take to seize the opportunities and avoid the risks that lie ahead. This discussion was part of the Nashville Health Care Council’s Thought Leadership series, a series of presentations from council members regarding cutting-edge industry trends.
