Winstead Shareholder Sarah Churchill Llamas presented a webinar for TMLT titled “New Law Impacting your Practice: Information Blocking.” In the webinar, Sarah discusses the new Information Blocking rule that goes into effect on April 5, 2021. This rule affects patient access to data and system interoperability and it is intended to improve the electronic exchange of health information among payers, providers, and patients. These policies — it is predicted — will play a key role in reducing overall payer and provider burden and improving patient access to health information.
