Interoperability and Information Blocking Regulations

Resources regarding the ONC and CMS final regulations aimed at improving interoperability and patient access to electronic health information.

The 21st Century Cures Act required ONC to develop regulations to improve interoperability and patient access to electronic health information and deter information blocking. In May 2020, both ONC and CMS published final regulations that outline a number of requirements for physicians, health IT vendors, health information exchanges, and payers regarding enhancing electronic health information exchange and patient access to their data, including the use of modern health IT standards, standards-based APIs, and guidance regarding information blocking practices. The resources below provide additional information to help members comply with new requirements.
