Melissa Soliz Educates American Bar Association on Changes to Health Privacy & Data Rules

The health data landscape is rapidly changing, and Melissa Soliz recently helped members of the American Bar Association’s health law and science and technology law sections understand recent and upcoming developments.

During the webinar, Mel focused on the status of CMS and ONC final rules on information blocking and interoperability as well as recent and upcoming modifications to the 42 CFR Part 2 rules governing substance use disorder information. This includes major changes that will, in specific cases, align Part 2 data sharing rules more closely to HIPAA.

With extensive experience in regulatory health law, data privacy and patient access laws, Mel has educated numerous organizations about the Information Blocking Rule (IBR). Most recently, she shared her expertise during the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative’s (SHIEC) webinar series. Mel works closely with community health information exchanges, health care providers and health plans to understand and create compliance programs with the IBR and the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule.
