To Boldly Go: Meeting Interoperability Requirements Under the 21st Century Cures Act

Date: 12/07/22
Time: 2:00-3:30 PM ET

Overview: This advanced-level webinar will offer real-world, practical perspectives on how to implement compliance with new federal interoperability requirements, including: 

• The Information Blocking Rule (42 U.S.C. § 300jj-52 and 45 C.F.R. Part 171); 

• The CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule, including CMS e-notification requirements, Patient Access API, Provider Directory API and Payer-to-Payer (P2P) Exchange.

• USCDI v.2, USCDI v.3 and USCDI+; and

• The interplay between these interoperability requirements and other state and federal laws, such as HIPAA, 42 C.F.R. Part 2, state confidentiality requirements, Prompting Interoperability, IPPS and MIPS.

We will also cover what is coming next with respect to interoperability requirements and programs, including the CMS Interoperability and Prior Authorization Proposed Rule and the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA). We will use hypotheticals and case scenarios to explain to whom these laws apply; when they apply; and how to comply with the requirements, including best practice tips.
