WAFCA Member Webinar on Information Blocking - What Providers Need to Know

In April of this year, new federal regulations regarding patient access to health care records became effective. In general, the new regulations impact rights to access electronic health information and the requirements apply broadly to health care providers and electronic health records systems and exchanges. Many health care providers are still in the process of assessing the impact on their organization and developing policies to come into compliance. 

This webinar featuring Stephane Fabus, Attorney at Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, will answer specific questions emerging in the mental health and human services sector including:

  • What is Information blocking?
  • I don't have an electronic health record system. Does this apply to me? (If you maintain health records, yes)
  • Do I have to provide access to psychotherapy notes and other sensitive notes?
  • Who has access to records under the new rule? Do I have new obligations for sharing records with other providers?
  • What should I be doing now?
