Information Blocking Basics Webinar

This program will provide background on the Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology’s (ONC) new rule prohibiting information blocking and facilitating individual access to patient records, current and future compliance deadlines, and practical considerations as you prepare and revise policies to implement the new rule.  In addition, we will discuss the potential impact of a proposed HIPAA rule change that will affect how you deal with patient access requests and authorizations.
