Resource Summary: In this webinar, the HITEQ Center discusses the 21st Century CURES act (CURES act), specifically focused on how it defined interoperability and information blocking and how that relates to health centers. With HHS recently extending the provider compliance date to April 5, 2021, we review how ONC’s final rules defined information blocking requirements and exceptions. We discuss common scenarios and health center policy practices that might be considered information blocking, and how they can reduce health center risks with early planning and policy definitions.
