What do providers need to know to prepare for the September 23rd enforcement date for the new Omnibus Rule.
Representatives from HealthInfoNet and Systems Engineering recently spoke at the Maine Nurse Practitioners Association Spring Conference to discuss HIPAA and recent changes enacted in the Omnibus Rule. HealthInfoNet will also be holding an informational webinar on the topic May 9.
We’re looking forward to attending the upcoming Maine Telehealth Forum to learn and more and discuss how HIE can further support telehealth services in Maine.
Maine is a rural state and home to the oldest population in the nation. This creates ever-increasing demand for care services from an already strained rural health care system. Therefore it’s no surprise that Maine providers have been quick to adopt technology like electronic records, health information exchange (HIE), e-prescribing, and telehealth services. Supported by a strong information technology infrastructure, telehealth saves time and resources for both patients and providers.
