The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is proposing new rules that could pave the way for increased exchange of healthcare data by 2020. The rules, issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), would allow patients to have access to their electronic health records (EHR) at no charge. They also would be able to transfer them more easily from one provider to another. Instead of having patient information in disparate systems, the rules give all payers the ability to exchange data seamlessly and allow patients to obtain a complete picture of not only their own healthcare, but also their insurance claims information in one place. This would allow for better coordination of care.
