From the event page:

Recent Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) policy is bringing patients unprecedented access to their health information. Join the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in October for a virtual event focused on patient access to health data. The day will bring together patients, providers, payers, and health IT developers to discuss how HHS policies are working in practice and how to maximize the impact of these policies. The event will also highlight educational tools and resources, such as patient-facing apps that enable the availability of patient information and make that health information easier to understand.

Attend the ONC and CMS patient access event to hear more about…

  • Patients’ experiences accessing their data, including the benefits and challenges they faced along this journey.
  • How the next generation of apps are connecting across new health information sources to bring together patients’ data and preferred tools to act on that data.
  • Clinicians who are at the forefront of helping patients access and understand their data, recognizing patient preferences and privacy concerns.
  • Innovative developers demonstrating how they are making patients’ data actionable, and the implementation challenges they face as they connect sources across the care continuum
  • Health care payers’ successes and challenges with making data available to patients. 

Don't miss this opportunity to learn about the latest developments in patient data access and how you can be a part of the path forward.

To ensure the widest participation possible, this event will now be all-virtual. Register today, and check out valuable information and resources about the patient’s right to their data on our website.
