21st Century Cures Act

The Cures Act strongly supports access to EHR data using third-party solutions

  • The Cures Act calls for data exchange standards that permit access to certain components of electronic health information (EHI) “without special effort.” (sections 4002, 4003).
  • The Act defines information blocking as “A practice that, except as required by law or covered by an exception, is likely to interfere with, prevent, or materially discourages access, exchange to use of EHI.” (section 4004).
  • Entities that engage in information blocking face penalties of up to $1,000,000 per violation.

In the Final Rule and related commentary, the ONC made clear its purpose to:

  • “Re-inject competition into health care by lowering barriers to entry and preventing abuses of market power and improve access to the quality of information that Americans need to make informed health care decisions.”
  • Support: “[H]ealth care providers’ independence to choose the “provider-facing” third-party services they want to use to interact with the [EHRs] they have acquired.”
  • Support activities that focus on: “[I]mproving patient and health care provider access to [electronic health information] and promoting competition.”
Information blocking claims can be submitted online through ONC’S Report Information Blocking Portal (https://inquiry.healthit.gov/support/plugins/servlet/desk/portal/6).

Examples of prohibited information blocking

Scenario 1

EHR Vendor intentionally restricts access to certain components of electronic health information (EHI) for competitive reasons, preventing other healthcare providers or patients from accessing and using the data.

Scenario 2

EHR Vendor charges exorbitant fees or imposes unreasonable conditions for sharing or exchanging EHI, making it financially burdensome or practically impossible for healthcare providers to access necessary information.

Scenario 3

EHR Vendor implements technical barriers that hinder interoperability and data exchange with other systems, deliberately impeding the flow of EHI between different healthcare organizations.

Scenario 4

EHR Vendor refuses to cooperate with requests from healthcare providers or patients to share specific types of EHI, without any valid legal justification or exception under the Cures Act.

Scenario 5

EHR Vendor engages in anti-competitive practices by entering into exclusive agreements with certain healthcare providers, limiting their ability to use competing 3rd party services for interacting with their EHRs.

Simplify the use of EHR data when, where, and how it’s needed to improve care.
