Interoperability Proposals Tee Up ‘Epic’ Battle in Health Care

Recently, medical records software vendor Epic Systems Corp. made headlines by threatening to sue HHS over its proposed regulations promoting interoperability and urging its clients to oppose the new requirements as well.

Epic is not the only health care player that may be put off by the Trump administration’s interoperability proposals, which it released last February in a bid to help patients share and obtain their health records more easily. Insurers would face a slew of new requirements to facilitate better data-sharing under one of the two proposed rules (HPW 2/25/19, p. 1).
