Data Access, Information Sharing, and The 21st Century Cures Act
As the healthcare industry adapts to the way patients live today, data access and information sharing (particularly of ePHI, or electronic protected health information) have emerged as two critical considerations.
The 21st Century Cures Act (or, simply The Cures Act) addresses these two concerns through nationwide interoperability. The path to achieving interoperability is full of obstacles that will require careful planning and consistent collaboration to overcome. As healthcare providers work to enhance the connections in their practice, patients will reap the benefits.
