The topic of today’s program is “Why payers can’t ignore the interoperability rules and should comply sooner rather than later.” The Interoperability and Patient Access final rule approved by CMS and ONC is intended to advance patient participation through access to their health information and to drive advanced interoperability and innovation across the U.S. These rules will have significant impact on payer organizations who are currently facing unprecedented times.
