September.27.2021

In this Bloomberg Law article, cyber and privacy partners Thora Johnson and Heather Sussman and associate Ryan McKenney analyze new rules prohibiting information blocking rules for health tech companies and outline steps they can take to ensure compliance.

The article explores provisions in the 21st Century Cures Act, which includes a prohibition on information blocking that penalizes health care providers and health tech companies for knowingly and unreasonably interfering with the exchange of electronic health information (EHI).

“By taking proactive steps today to address the information blocking rules, health tech companies can avoid fines and other regulatory burdens on the back end,” the article concludes.
