Statement on Extension of Compliance Dates and Timeframes for Information Blocking and the ONC Health IT Certification Program Requirements

By Blair Childs, Senior Vice President, Public Affairs

The Premier healthcare alliance commends the Department of Health and Human Services for answering our call to reduce burden on providers by delaying the compliance date for the information blocking provisions of the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT (ONC) information blocking final rule by six months. The rule was finalized just as the COVID-19 pandemic hit America. The public health emergency has required an unprecedented response from healthcare providers that has left them with limited time and resources to implement new policies in response to complex information blocking requirements and associated exceptions. While Premier and our members are committed to expanding patients’ access to data, the delay will allow them to remain focused on combatting COVID-19 and bringing our nation back to health.

We urge electronic health record (EHRs) vendors, despite the delays, to move forward and expedite upgrades to their current technology, especially implementation of the USCDI; open, standardized Application Programming Interfaces (APIs); and electronic health information export functionality. These EHR capabilities are needed to help ensure high quality and efficient care supported by fully interoperable EHRs and third-party applications, data sharing and exchange.
