When the 21st Century Cures Act and the final rule mandating regulatory compliance for healthcare information exchange were released on March 9, 2020, the Office of National Coordinator of Healthcare Information Technology (ONC) said certain interoperability changes must be implemented within the next six-to-36 months. Due to COVID-19, the Department of Health and Human Services announced on April 21, 2020, that ONC and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services intend to exercise discretionary enforcement for a three-to-six-month period.

The Office established a timeline for health IT developers to meet the rules and guidelines:

IQVIA, as the industry leader in the use of healthcare data, can assist healthcare organizations facing the challenges of assessing, defining, and implementing the technology needed to support interoperability. Together, we can embrace the vision of the 21st Century Cures Act and improve the care and quality all members and patients deserve.
