1upHealth can help you address new CMS Patient Access Rule compliance through our FHIR platform.
CMS-regulated health plans are required to make provider directory information publicly available via a standards-based API. 1upHealth is well positioned to support health plans in meeting the CMS Patient Access Provider Directory requirements. We would build on our platform already in production to quickly and efficiently assist in meeting compliance requirements.
Health plans must make available a FHIR API based list of providers that are in-network. This is the same approach we’ve taken with the public NPPES provider directory FHIR API already on the 1up platform. Mandate details:
* MA-PD impacted plans must also make Pharmacy name, Address, Phone number, Number of pharmacies in network, and Type of pharmacy (e.g., “retail pharmacy”).
To support this further, we would deploy documentation and the ability for developers to use the same keys for the patient access API for the provider directory API.

Our team is comprised of leading FHIR experts who have presented alongside CMS and ONC leaders like Dr. Don Rucker, had led HL7 standard balloting, and participate in numerous FHIR connectathons.
Because our award-winning FHIR solution is already in production, we can ensure timely deployment and meeting the requirements of the new rules.
