Summary: The 21st Century Cures Act was signed in December 2016, and on May 1, 2020, The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published final rules on the Federal Register addressing multiple provisions, including two that likely require action on the part of healthcare organizations: information blocking and interoperability. These rules are part of the 21st Century Cures Act implementation and focus on advancing interoperability and expanding the access, exchange, and use of electronic health information. With these rules come new terms, new potential changes for your organization, and a timeline that includes a milestone in Q4 of 2020.

Project First Line Infection Control Series
The global COVID-19 pandemic has forced a lot of changes in our lives. As we adapt to this “new normal,” many people have been concerned about its impact on children. Through support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units, and the Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics, we are presenting this Project Firstline podcast. This is part of the Ohio AAP’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic where we will get answers to your questions that you have submitted to the AAP regarding COVID-19 prevention and infection control. Experts in this three part series will talk about pediatric environmental exposures, infection control, and indoor air quality will provide evidence-based, practical advice to help us all get through the pandemic safely.
Project Firstline is a national collaborative led by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide infection control training and education to frontline healthcare workers and public health personnel. The American Academy of Pediatrics is proud to partner with Project Firstline, as supported through Cooperative Agreement CDC-RFA-OT18-1802.
