The conversation in the podcast will provide listeners with an overview of what the 21st Century Cures Act Rule will mean for patients, health care providers, health information technology developers and vendors, and health information networks. We will discuss the use of application programming interfaces (APIs) that will help individuals access their electronic health information on their smartphones, help health care providers access patient information at the point of care and in bulk to help them identify opportunities to address many of their patients’ needs, and help payers and researchers access information to better inform payment and improvements in care. The Final Rule identifies those times when healthcare providers, developers and information networks won’t need to provide information.
