Last year the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) announced rules in support of patient access to their health information using standards-based application programming interface technology (APIs).  APIs enable computers to talk to each other and it is the vision of ONC to enable people to access and direct their health information using API-based apps.

In this webinar, participants will learn from the firsthand experience of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital how the Verisma Request App (VRA) is transforming release of health information (ROI) at NYC’s #1 hospital.  NewYork-Presbyterian is proactively advancing the right of the patient to get their electronic health information — and they are using VRA as the application to do so.  This  webinar will also highlight essential technical and functionality app requirements that HIM, CIO and Compliance managers should assess when considering use of mobile tools.

Webinar objectives:

  • Understand the federal policy environment concerning apps and health information access
  • Learn from health system experiences using apps to enable release of information while improving customer satisfaction;
  • Review a technology, standards, privacy and security checklist for sound release of information apps.
