Learn how the CMS & ONC Final Interoperability Rules will affect healthcare organizations like yours.

Government regulations affecting healthcare, and in particular healthcare IT, can be difficult to sort through. But it's important to pay attention to them because healthcare, especially in the U.S., is a game played on a field defined by regulation. Understanding regulations is key for maintaining compliance, remaining competitive, and, most importantly, improving the delivery of healthcare. 

To help break down two of the most recent healthcare regulations from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), we invite you to watch this one-hour webinar in which we explain: 

  • The fact that these “new” rules are the most recent advancements from the HITECH Act and the 21st Century Cures Act 
  • The differences and similarities between the CMS rule (primarily addressing interoperability and patient access to data) and the ONC rule (addressing interoperability and information blocking) 
  • The levers that CMS and ONC can use to ensure compliance 
  • Impact to providers, payers, health IT vendors, and patients  
  • The importance of FHIR, a healthcare data format mandated by the rules
