Complying with the 21st Century Cures Act

Ensure doctor-patient transparency with Eyefinity.

In a fast-paced, ever-changing world, you and your patients are used to a certain level of accessibility when it comes to health data. However, this also makes keeping health information out of the wrong hands a top priority. As a provider, it can be hard to balance data protection with transparency and accessibility. That’s where the 21st Century Cures Act and our commitment to compliance come into play.

What is the 21st Century Cures Act?

The 21st Century Cures Act recognizes patients' basic rights to have easy access to their own health records. It addresses "information blocking," which imposes unnecessary restrictions that keep patients from accessing, exchanging, or using their own health data.

Patients often turn to you, the provider, when they can't view their health information. Granting access to patient data can be complicated, frustrating, and time-consuming. And what if, through human error, patient information is intercepted by someone who isn’t supposed to have it?

We have the solution: a simple, secure way to make a patient’s personal health information available to them when they need it.

Maintaining Compliance with Eyefinity

Ultimately, this regulation is about achieving transparency and fairness. But complying with the 21st Century Cures Act in Eyefinity EHR couldn’t be easier. You never have to sacrifice security for accessibility, or vice versa. All you do is give patients access to their secure portal. That’s it! From there, patients can view past visits and see their health history whenever they need to.

Because we understand you don’t have time to keep up with every regulation, we work hard to monitor changes to eye care-related rules and incorporate them into our solutions, so you experience as little disruption as possible. Change can be challenging, especially in eye care, but we’re here for you every step of the way.
