Investing for the future: The ONC and CMS proposed rules on interoperability

Sponsor Content from

The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) comment period is closed. With over a thousand organizations submitting comments, they have a lot to review and consider. Healthcare IT looks ahead and asks questions such as “How can my organization prepare and should we invest time and resources?”

During this webinar the presenters reflect on critical elements in the NPRM and how these could impact payers, providers, and health IT vendors. They will discuss the focus of the rule, which is data, interoperability, and patient/member access; suggest steps organizations can take to invest in their data today; and discuss how the NPRM can help advance other CMS initiatives including value-based reimbursement (such as risk-based ACOs), Patients over Paperwork (meant to relieve clinician burden), and the My HealthEData Initiative (meant to engage and empower patients).

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • ONC and CMS proposed rules, including APIs, Information blocking, EHI, and the USCDI
  • Potential impact of the proposed rules on payers, providers, and health IT
  • How final rules can empower patients and members
  • Steps that can be taken today so your data helps you in the future

Learn how the ONC and CMS proposed rule may affect your organization, how data is the focus, and how interoperability is the goal. Investing today can provide value in the short term while hedging your investments for the future.
