The Information Blocking regulation went into effect on April 5, 2021. While we should all be fully compliant with the regulations, the fact is that in 2022, the scope of information sharing will expand from the current United States Core Data for Interoperability Version 1 (July 2020 Errata) (USCDI v1) data set to all Electronic Health Information (EHI) in the designated record set. In addition, the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) Version 1 was released on January 18, 2022. The overall goal of TEFCA is to establish a model for securely sharing clinical information.

What does TEFCA mean and how will this impact the exchange and sharing of EHI going forward? How will this help facilitate the exchange of EHI among healthcare information networks? In addition, what does “all EHI” mean in terms of the regulation and what does this mean for healthcare organizations and payers charged with information sharing?

Hear from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology regarding what to expect in 2022 and the status of ONC’s Information Blocking Regulations as they pertain to access, exchange, and use of electronic health information.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand Information Sharing in 2022 and Subsequent Years
  • Learn about TEFCA and its implications for healthcare networks sharing of EHI.
  • Learn how covered entities should adopt and adapt for compliance in the coming year and identify specific impacts for release of information.
