Patients are now officially empowered to demand online access to their health records. Requirements mandate that all stakeholders, from providers to payers, honor patient requests for EHI, with expected enforcement around the corner. And implementation of 2022 information blocking rules are just one step in the ONC’s journey toward expanded clinical data sharing and exchange in healthcare. Amid these new requirements, HIM professionals find themselves in a unique and assuring career position. The journey to interoperability requires health information management to rethink the oversight and flow of patient data throughout its lifecycle. Substantial, cross-functional preparation and adjustments are necessary. During this session, a seasoned expert provides practical applications, including the need for HIM professionals to refocus their efforts on data integrity, collaborate with information technology (IT) counterparts, and appropriately map out new information flows.
