The 21st Century Cures Act: How patient engagement can help your practice remain compliant

on November 21, 2022 | By The InteliChart Team

In March of 2019, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) issued what is commonly referred to as the Information Blocking Rule to the 21st Century Cures Act. Information blocking was defined as any practice that is likely to unreasonably interfere with the access, exchange, or use of electronic health information. As the American Medical Association points out, information blocking can occur in several ways and doesn’t necessarily have to be intentional on the part of providers. For example, patients might encounter information blocking if they are unable to access health records or transfer data to another physician. This could ultimately lead to patient complaints and potential penalties. Although complaints have been filed against more the 170 health care providers in 2022 so far, there have been no investigations for information blocking by individual provider practices – yet. The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has provided guidance on potential sanctions including up to a $50,000 fine for each incident, and one thing is clear: practices must act quickly or soon face regulatory compliance issues. The best way to protect your practice is to ensure you are using patient engagement technology that complies with regulations, specifically a patient portal that makes access to health information easy and is positioned to adjust as patient and regulatory expectations around access to health information evolves.
