A  Senate committee will hold a hearing March 26 to discuss CMS and ONC's information blocking and interoperability rules proposed in February under the 21st Century Cures Act, reports Politico's Morning eHealth newsletter.

The proposed rules aim to give patients free access to their medical records, create a public reporting system for information blocking and help the industry adopt standardized application programming interfaces, among other provisions. The hearing will examine these rules in greater depth.

The rules are open for public comment until May 3. View the rules in full here.
