Modern Healthcare

HHS has extended the comment period for two proposed interoperability rules, the agency announced Friday morning.

The CMS and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology released their long-awaited interoperability and data-blocking proposals in February. The proposals outline how regulators will require providers and insurers to share medical data with patients, such as through application programming interfaces that connect electronic health records systems with third-party apps.
