Earlier this year the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) Cures Act Final Rule established new regulations supporting “seamless and secure access, exchange, and use of electronic health information (EHI)”. Under the new regulations, delaying the availability of results to patients is considered an interference.
There is currently a 4 day delay on reports populating within the Imaging Healthcare Specialists patient portal, providing the ordering clinician time to review the results of an exam and personally inform the patient of the results before a patient can electronically access such results on their own. The ONC Cures Act now requires the removal of any delay of the patient receiving their report, making EHI available to the ordering provider and patient simultaneously.
We are providing this notification as a courtesy in advance of removing the delay of report results being available to patients. While we must remain compliant with established regulations, we also value our relationship with you as a referring provider and welcome your feedback and questions in advance of this change. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact Sarah Woroniecki at 858-658-6566 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our target for implementation is September 30, 2021.
