The 21st Century CURES Act

Beginning Nov. 2, patients of Fairfield Medical Center will have immediate and complete access to all their electronic protected health information (ePHI) at no cost under the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC)’s CURES Act. This health information includes all clinical notes, final test results, and medications. The purpose of the act is to prohibit information blocking, which is anything that interferes with, prevents, or materially discourages access, exchange, or use of electronic health information. Prohibiting information blocking allows patients take a more active role in their own healthcare decisions and management.

What you need to know regarding the CURES Act:

  • Electronic protected healthcare information will be made available to the patient through My FMC Portal and includes, but is not limited to, clinical notes, final lab results, final imaging results, etc. FMC Staff will not use the patient portal to obtain information on a patient.
  • Parents and legal guardians of children under the age of 13 are may be granted proxy access to the child’s account. Limited access will be available following the child’s 13th birthday. Information that can be restricted includes past appointments, discharge instructions, notes and medication.
  • Teenagers (13-17) will be allowed to have their own My FMC Portal account and access to their electronic health information. They will be able to authorize their proxy expanded My FMC Portal access, giving them full access.
  • The CURES Act identifies activities that do not constitute information blocking. Information blocking does not include practices that are required by applicable law or, through regulation, are identified as necessary to protect patient safety, maintain privacy or security of the individual’s health information, and promotes competition and consumer welfare.
  • Specific notes can be blocked from a patient’s My FMC Portal by their provider if the release of information could endanger the life or physical safety of that patient. The specific reason for blocking the information must be noted by the provider.
  • Please be aware that you will be receiving these results at the same time as your provider, who may not have had the opportunity to review them yet, and that interpretation and/or guidance may follow in the coming days.
