- Throughout the implementation of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, providers have frequently voiced their concerns regarding information blocking, a practice through which data exchange with other EHR systems is effectively stymied through the imposition of additional fees and technical barriers. In accordance with EHR certification rules established on January 14, 2016 and in response to these concerns, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has prepared a comprehensive list of EHR vendors that have completed a Transparency Attestation and published detailed information about technology and business practices related to information blocking and interoperability. This resource, which is intended to provide greater insight to practices making purchasing decisions between EHR vendors, is available here.
