CMS to Host Listening Session on Interoperability and Patient Access Proposed Rule

Posted on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 3:48 PM

On February 11, CMS released the Interoperability and Patient Access proposed rule outlining opportunities to make patient data more useful and transferable through open, secure, standardized, and machine-readable formats, while reducing restrictive burdens on health care providers. In addition, CMS released two Requests for Information (RFIs) to obtain feedback on:

  • Interoperability and health information technology adoption in post-acute care settings
  • Role of patient matching in interoperability and improved patient care

CMS Administrator, Seema Verma, opens this listening session, followed by an overview by CMS experts. Learn about provisions that impact you and get answers to your clarifying questions to help formulate comments for formal submission. Topics include:

  • Patient access through application programming interfaces
  • Health information exchange and care coordination across payers
  • Public reporting and prevention of information blocking
  • Provider digital contact information
  • Revisions to the conditions of participation for hospitals and critical access hospitals
  • RFIs

We encourage you to review the proposed rule prior to the listening session. Note: Feedback received during this listening session will not be considered formal comments on the rule. See the proposed rule for information on submitting these comments by the deadline.
