Webinar replay: New rules for sharing employee health information are here. Is your clinic ready?
Find out what you need to know about sharing electronic health information with employees
Recently passed legislation called the 21st Century Cures Act includes provisions mandating that healthcare providers avoid “information blocking” and share electronic health information with patients in a specific and timely manner. These new rules took effect this month and may change how your onsite occupational or employee health clinic handles requests from employees for their health information. Are you ready?
During this webinar, a team of legal and occupational health experts shared important information about the potential impact of this new legislation on onsite employee health clinics. This information will guide occupational health professionals in discussions with their legal teams and development of new policies at their organizations for how to respond to requests from employees.
Watch the replay to learn:
- Specifics about the new rules and how they may apply to occupational and employee health data
- Benefits of making health information available to your employee population
- Tips for how to prepare for appropriate and compliant information sharing with employee populations
