According to ONC and CMS, health systems are the largest and most traditional data hoarders.


If the impending data blocking regulation is then aimed at health systems and providers, how do you protect yourself and what is the fine print?


Fines, disincentives and de-certification are on the table. The heart of the regulation is patients presenting with an API to tap into health systems to extract all of their data.


Watch this concise 30-minute webinar on key language health systems need to know:

  • Who deploys the API technology patients can tap into? You may be surprised.
  • What is the scope of “all of their data” and what 3rd party apps can be used?
  • Recovering reasonable costs is a data blocking exception, but what are the 7 costs that do not count as a data blocking exception? What are opportunity costs?
  • Health system protections without using a vendor.
  • How and why the regulation is different for health systems and system providers.
  • Why a Senate hearing included testimony on “gaming the system.”


We will also overview examples of data blocking and further exceptions.
