AHIMA has launched a free on-demand webinar that breaks down the provisions and certification and compliance requirements of the recently finalized rules on information blocking and interoperability.
21st Century Cures Act: Interoperability, Information Blocking, and the ONC Health IT Certification Program Final Rule is presented by Elise Sweeney Anthony, Executive Director, and Elisabeth Myers, Deputy Director, Office of Policy at the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health IT.
The information blocking final rule solidifies the information blocking provisions in the 21st Century Cures Act—and has numerous implications for health information management (HIM) professionals for how they protect, exchange, and collect data, and bring their organization into compliance with its provisions.
AHIMA will continue to offer tools and resources to help HIM professionals and their industry partners better understand and interpret the rules for effective compliance across the healthcare enterprise.
The webinar’s objectives include:
- Updates to the 2015 edition certification criteria
- Conditions and maintenance of certification requirements
- Information blocking provisions
This webinar is part of a series of on-demand webinars based on presentations originally scheduled for the Advocacy Summit, which was cancelled in early March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other webinar topics include social determinants of health; enhancing patient access, integrating clinical and administrative data, and a social media and advocacy workshop. Two of the webinars are free. The others are $85 for non-members $65 for members, & $64 for premier members—or $100 for all five webinars.
