Recent CMS and ONC proposed rules prioritize getting data to patients, including through FHIR APIs, by adding new requirements. OCR requested input on how to improve the HIPAA right of access and at HIMSS 2019 announced a focus on enforcing this right. By HIMSS 2020, there likely will be final regulations creating greater accountability for providing patients with more seamless, digital access to their data. It will be some time before patients (or their apps) will be able to easily access all of their digital data through an EHR. With OCR looking for “big, fat, juicy” cases focusing on the right of access, and ONC prioritizing patient access under information blocking, hear from two former regulators at ONC and OCR on: 1) what are common areas of noncompliance with the HIPAA right of access; 2) how can providers quickly get into compliance; 3) what do new regulatory provisions requiring patient access to data mean for providers, and 4) how can providers prepare for the transition to facilitating more patient data access through EHRs?
