On February 11th, CMS released a proposed rule entitled patient access and interoperability that outlines how they propose state Medicaid agencies and Medicaid Managed Care organizations share data using Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). The ONC also released a proposed rule regarding information blocking related to the 21st Century Cures Act. Come learn more from CMS, the ONC, and the industry about the proposed rules. We will also be discussing Blue Button 2.0 and how state Medicaid compliance can be made easier using non-proprietary and free FHIR API implementation guides.
