Ambulatory: Webinar on “The 21st Century Cures Act”
- Please join Drs. Danny Lee and Howard Levy on Tuesday October 20, 2020, at 5:30 p.m., for an hour-long discussion about this new federal regulation taking effect on November 2, 2020.
- The new rule grants patients unrestricted access to electronic health information, including clinical notes and test results.
- Johns Hopkins delayed changes to MyChart clinical note release and teen proxy access until January 4, 2021, due to feasibility issues; however, immediate release of all test results and many other types of information begins November 2, 2020.
- Result Release to MyChart:
- A new question now appears when ordering labs, imaging and other diagnostic tests, which indicates whether a test result should be released to patients via MyChart immediately or manually, after it is finalized.
- The default choice is “Immediate”; this selection affects test results finalized after 11/2/20. Until then, when Immediate is selected, the existing rules for result release will continue to be in place.
- If “Manual” is selected, choose one of the allowed reasons for not releasing a result immediately, and enter a required comment. Unlike the Immediate button, selecting “Manual” will prevent the release of a result now, before the 11/2/20 rules take effect [previously, it was communicated that that “Manual” button would not take affect until 11/2/20].
- The session will be recorded for those unable to join and one CME credit is available.
