Interoperability and Patient Access Proposed Rule
The CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Proposed Rule introduces new policies that will expand access to health information and improve the seamless exchange of data in healthcare. This will enable better care coordination, better patient outcomes and reduced costs. Our proposals will help to break down existing barriers to interoperability and empower patients by giving them access to their health information. The policies in this proposed rule touch on all aspects of healthcare, from patients to providers to payers and researchers. The technology and standards we identify spark new opportunities for industry and researchers, while improving healthcare quality for all Americans.
