Health Leaders Media

The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) pushed forward a HITECH-required proposed rule on accounting of disclosures of EHRs Wednesday. The rule will lay the foundation for what healthcare providers will be accountable for when patients request disclosures on their electronic medical records. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) reviews all rules before they are made final. The process could take anywhere from one to 90 days.
