This Webinar is an unprecedented opportunity to learn directly from the Office for Civil Rights and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, the agencies that oversee and enforce regulations concerning access and interoperability of protected health information.

Access is at the heart of new regulatory changes that impact Release of Information (ROI) policy and practices. Agency experts will discuss the regulatory goals and vision, how their respective Rules protect and promote access, and their plans for education, technical assistance, and enforcement. They will answer questions posed by participants and discuss how best to approach health information access and compliance. Don’t miss this important agency discussion of patient access to their health information.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand how the ONC Cures Act Final Rule promotes access through technology innovation
  • Understand how the OCR proposed modifications to the HIPAA Privacy Rule advance access through policy modernization
  • Consider how covered entities should adopt and adapt for compliance in coming year. Identify the specific impacts for release of information.
