Limited Series Podcast
When regulators proposed a rule change that threatened to exclude cloud-fax technology from the national push for interoperability of personal healthcare information and electronic health records, J2 Global (J2), provider of eFax Corporate, wasted no time.
In February of this year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed policy changes for sharing clinical data by releasing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) informing the healthcare community of a new rule on (among other things) interoperability–the method by which healthcare professionals securely exchange medical documents. As you probably know, CMS is the department that oversees payments to providers through Medicare and falls under the U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) department.
Join John Nebergall on his journey to Washington and his meetings to discuss and educate why they should not leave digital fax technology out of future accepted means of interoperability for providers exchanging health information.
This limited series podcast was produced to bring you the details that John discussed in his meetings with CMS and congressional representatives.
- Episode 1 – Going to Washington to Advocate DCFT
- Episode 2 – An Overview of the Proposed Rule
- Episode 3 – DCFT as an accepted interoperability protocol
- Episode 4 – Impact on Rural Providers and Health Care Systems
