With all that 2020 has brought, the Information Blocking Rule that came out of the Cures Act was under the radar of many hospices. Thankfully, HHS extended the compliance date for the Rule to April 5, 2021, from November 2, 2020. With this additional time, hospices need to evaluate how they will achieve compliance; what policies they need to update; the work they need to do with their EMR vendor; and their rollout to patients, families and staff. In this conversation, Husch Blackwell's Meg Pekarske is joined by colleagues Wakaba Tessier, Tracey Toll and Kelsey Anderson to gain their insights on these questions and more.
