Most larger healthcare organizations are prepared for ONC's new information blocking rules, but not as many hospitals and health systems feel confident that the regulations will support any improvements to healthcare interoperability, according to a recent KLAS Research report.

For its Information Blocking Flash Insights 2021 Report, KLAS surveyed healthcare organizations to get their opinions on preparedness for the new rules, which went into effect April 5.

Here's what respondents said about their organization's level of preparedness for the information blocking requirements:

  • Very prepared: 21 percent
  • Prepared: 50 percent
  • Neutral: 17 percent
  • Unprepared: 7 percent
  • Very unprepared: 5 percent

Most providers expressed confidence in their EHR vendor's ability to meet the rule requirements, with 45 respondents saying they were very confident or confident, followed by 10 who were doubtful or very doubtful.
