PCS Webinar June 1st @ 9am: How the Final Rules on Information Blocking Will Affect Your Organization

On May 1, 2020, the Office of National Coordinator (ONC) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) simultaneously published their final rules implementing the 21st Century Cures Act.  On April 24, 2020, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) released its Proposed Rule on Civil Monetary Penalties (CMPs) to be imposed against actors who engage in prohibited “Information Blocking.” These new rules and standards will turn on their heads certain policies and procedures that covered entities and business associates may have adopted in accordance with HIPAA and permitted business practices, and now all need to be updated to ensure that they do not violate these new 21st Century CURES’ Act rules.  There is a lot on everyone’s minds these days, but deadlines loom around the corner and implementation cannot be completed hastily.  Join us for this Webinar to get a lean and focused overview of what you need to do to comply.  All types of Healthcare Providers, Health Information Exchanges, Health Information Networks, and Health IT vendors will benefit from this Webinar.

Our speaker will be Helen Oscislawski, Esq
