Duke Center for Health Informatics: 21st Century Cures Act – Interoperability: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The first phase of the 21st Century's Cures Act went into effect on April 5th 2021 with a goal to support seamless and secure access, exchange and use of electronic health information for all patients and secondarily to remove barriers for research. This seminar will review the federal mandates, implementation challenges as well as the unintended consequences for both health systems and patients. Both the benefits and limitations and potential harms will be examined.
