Colorado Geriatric Journal Club | Implications of Cures Act Patient Records Access Rules

Eric Wood from Omnicare reviews the next iteration of the Vivage Therapeutic Substitution form that will again require wet signature approval by everyone. He also discusses any notable changes since the last time we did this. The majority of the meeting is spent discussing what was a poorly advertised portion of the CURES Act. On November 2, a new federal rule that is part of the CURES Act requires the immediate release of many patient records including provider and non-provider daily progress notes (both inpatient and outpatient), plus all laboratory, radiology and pathology reports. This may have enormous implications for all of us, so this will be more of an open discussion than a presentation.
