CMS FHIR Interoperability and Patient Access Conference


The Virtual Health Conference for CMS will take place on Thursday, September 17th, 2020 from 12-5pm ET as a digital event providing an overview on CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule requirements for health plans; this is particularly important with the upcoming deadline of July 1, 2021. This is the second Virtual Health Conference hosted by 1upHealth, with the first Virtual Health Conference having taken place in March, covering topics such as the ONC Cures Act Final Rule and CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule.

Speakers like Denise St. Clair from CMS, Enrique Martinez-Vidal from ACAP, and many others will discuss requirements as part of the Interoperability and Patient Access final rule (CMS-9115-F), which is focused on driving interoperability and patient health data access for health plans including Medicare Advantage (MA), Medicaid, CHIP, and Qualified Health Plan (QHP) issuers on the Federally-facilitated Exchanges (FFEs).
