Legal Issue(s):

The RE-Assist team is seeking guidance on two new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid rules: (i) The Impact Act 2019; and the (ii) Interoperability and Patient Access Rule 2020. With respect to The Impact Act, they’d like to better understand the discharge process from the hospital and to clarify whether it is the hospital’s responsibility to make sure patients are informed of post-acute services. If so, they’d like to know what details are required. With respect to the Interoperability and Patient Access Rule 2020, they’d like to understand whether skilled nursing facilities are required to make patient information accessible digitally.
