Information Blocking Rule: The Impact to HIM

Date & Time:
Wednesday, June 10, 2020|2:00 P.M.



As the Information Blocking Rule encourages the flow of information for patient enhanced management of their own healthcare through the use of health information, we will be seeing increased patient directed flow of their health information to APIs and other support management tools. Learn how this rule appears to conflict areas of HIPAA and what that means for HIM departments.

MRO’s Rita Bowen, VP of Privacy, Compliance and HIM Policy, and Danielle Wesley, VP and General Counsel, will be presenting on the topic. Participants will walk away with: 

  • Knowledge of the background of the rule, including exceptions to the definition of information blocking
  • Strategies on how to collaborate within their organizations to ensure effective compliance from a long-term perspective
  • Discover the significance of APIs, which includes the ability to provide patients more control over their information


This webinar is pre-approved by AHIMA for one (1) CEU.
