Over the last few weeks, I have come across a number of health care provider organizations that are under the incorrect assumption or belief that their EMR vendor is “taking care of” all that needs to be done in order for the provider to comply with Information Blocking. This is false. There are operational decisions and other process issues that must be addressed and can only be implemented by the Actor. Every health health care provider that meets the definition of an “Actor” should be taking active steps towards getting their organization positioned to comply with Information Blocking by April 5, 2021. Where should you start?  I propose using a checklist as a simple starting point to begin “ticking off” your Information Blocking “to do” list . . .
