Advancing Interoperability Learning Collaborative Session 1: Don’t Block the CURES

Advancing Interoperability Learning Collaborative Session 1: Don’t Block the CURES

HITEQ Advancing Interoperability Learning Collaborative Series

In this session, we will discuss the 21st Century CURES act (CURES act) specifically focused on how it defined interoperability and information blocking and how that relates to health centers. With HHS recently extending the provider compliance date to April 5, 2021, the group will review how ONC’s final rules defined information blocking requirements and exceptions. The group will discuss common scenarios and health center policy practices that might be considered information blocking, and how they can reduce health center risks with early planning and policy definitions.

Learning Objectives: After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
- Understand how the CURES act defines Interoperability and Information Blocking
- Describe how the ONC final rules define reasonable exceptions to information blocking
- Review and update health center policies in key areas related to information blocking
