The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), will hold a public Q&A webinar to discuss Health IT for pediatric care and settings provisions provisions within their recently released Cures Act Final Rule. The final rule will help give patients safe, secure access to their health data, spur innovation, and address industry-wide information blocking practices.
The final rule implements interoperability provisions of the bipartisan 21st Century Cures Act and promotes patient access to their health record. Putting patients in charge of their health records is a key piece of patient control in health care, and patient control is at the center of our work toward a value-based health care system.
Members of the public may attend the webinar with advance registration. More information is available at this event registration website.
