Patients and their providers both expect and need unfettered access to critical health data from multiple care settings. Patients also desire to have greater control over their health information. This shift in electronic health information (EHI) management and usage creates an even greater need to broaden healthcare’s digital doorway. The 21st Cures Act stands as a significant piece of regulation that will help improve EHI access, promote interoperability, and meet the demands of healthcare consumers, providers, and regulatory bodies.
Hospitals need to prepare for this Promoting Interoperability regulation well before the 2023 reporting period, and MEDHOST can help.
The Cures Act advances Promoting Interoperability by requiring hospitals to give patients and providers a way to securely access and share healthcare data stored in electronic health records (EHR) and other health information technology (HIT) systems.
Most importantly, Cures prohibits information blocking that restricts access to specified personal healthcare data. For that reason, the ability to allow open access to healthcare data across the spectrum of care and move that data between different healthcare settings is critical to compliance.
These are two major technology areas a Cures compliant solution must focus on.
As an integral portion of our current HIT products and solutions, the MEDHOST Cures 2023 Interoperability Solution incorporates all of the features mentioned above into a single deliverable. This solution creates a framework for the seamless and secure access, exchange, and use of electronic health information for our customers.
By leveraging the existing MEDHOST platform, the MEDHOST Cures 2023 Interoperability Solution empowers our customers and their patients with improved access to electronic health record (EHR) systems across various healthcare settings.
