ONC Webinar Presentation on Information Blocking
October 20, 2021 | 1:00PM
The Office of the National Coordinator’s (ONC) 21st Century Cures Act Final Rule supports seamless and secure access, exchange, and use of electronic health information. To further support access and exchange of EHI, the rule implements the information blocking provisions of the Cures Act.
Join us for this webinar to learn more. Speakers will explain how ONC supports secure, appropriate sharing of electronic health information and how information sharing leads to more affordable and equitable care and improved care quality.
Hear answers to questions such as:
- What is information blocking and why should I care?
- Why is information sharing so important?
- What information needs to be shared and with whom?
- What are some exceptions to the rule, and when do they apply?
There will also be time at the end for moderated Q&A. Please email Heide Borgonovo (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the questions you would like speakers to address prior to the webinar.
