Cures Act and Information Blocking
In 2016 Congress passed the Cures Act which directs any health care entity or clinician to allow patients immediate access to their electronic medical records via an online portal. This includes immediate release of test results, imaging studies, pathology reports, progress notes and more. We know this has severe implications that you as clinicians are already experiencing. In some cases, patients are receiving test results before the physician has a chance to review them. Please see below for links that will help as you navigate this with your patients. GLMS is currently working to provide additional resources and information to you on this subject. We will be sharing that as soon as those are available.

Dr. Melissa Platt is an emergency medicine physician with UofL Health, Professor in the Dept. of Emergency Medicine at UofL and Program Director of the UofL Emergency Medicine Residency Program--and also this month’s Dr. Who. On top of her practicing and teaching responsibilities, she is also a strong advocate for patients and colleagues at a local and national levels. “Policy, writing laws, and advocating for patients can have just as profound of an impact and are probably just as important as the lifesaving measures, I do at the bedside.”
