On March 9, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT released companion final rules that they intend to advance system interoperability and, specifically, patient access to their health care information. Together, the rules implement various sections of the 21st Century Cures Act and Executive Order 13813 to provide consumers with better access to their information and stakeholders better access to information for coordination of care and value-based care delivery.
