This session will offer effective strategies to help healthcare providers protect them earned revenue and empower frictionless, postive patient experiences.

New patient access, interoperability and information blocking rules

Health care professionals need to understand that the rules governing health information are changing.  Under current final rules, providers and health plans must share data directly with patients, and if a patient requests their data be shared with an app on their phone, you must comply.

These new rules change the nature of health information as we know it, and they bring new challenges-and new actors - into the more traditional health care market.

Learn about these new rules, where they came from, and what they could mean for you and your business from an expert that helped craft the federal statute creating these new rules.
