Interoperability and Information Fact Sheet from CMS & ONC

ONC is including a new specification (as part of the 2015 Edition Base EHR definition) that will require software vendors to provide the capability to electronically export all EHI they produce and manage in an electronic format (potentially including images, clinical notes (including shared notes may conflict with state privacy laws) and data warehouse information), facilitating import and export of entire medical records between vendors for both providers and patients.
