Do you think they are talking about information blocking that does not go into effect until next year?
Agree they could be referring to Information Blocking, in which we need to be in compliance by November 2020., rule was finalized in May. But it really has nothing to do with HIPAA, other than being more strict that HIPAA. Instead of having the option that we may disclose, with information blocking we must.
