Presenting jointly with the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) at the Arizona Society of Healthcare Attorneys (AZSHA), Melissa Soliz unpacked the complex interoperability requirements facing CMS-regulated payers.
Mel explained the interoperability and patient access requirements for CMS-regulated payers, including the Patient Access Application Programming Interface (API), the Provider Directory API, and Payer-to-Payer Exchange. Mel also specified what hospitals need to know about Conditions of Participation (CoPs) e-notification requirements under the new rule.
With a regulatory health law practice focusing on compliance with data privacy and patient access law (including the new Information Blocking Rule and CMS Interoperability and Patient Access final rule), Mel assists her clients in structuring real-world policies, programs and agreements to meet federal and state regulations. She regularly speaks in local and national forums on these topics and has been active in state and federal policy making on data privacy and health information exchange issues.
