Information Blocking / Sharing NEW UPDATE summer 2023

Any health systems still struggling with decisions about sharing Open Notes and Open Test Results, and how to build a win-win-win relationship between physicians/APP’s, patients and hospital leadership? Here you go, the result of years of building together at UCHealth

The general idea of information sharing between a clinic / hospital / physician/APP and their patients seems like “Mom and Apple Pie”. However, the devil is in the details. How do we approach this at UCHealth?

We do have over 2 decades of discussion on these topics, and these are now distilled for you. I’ve published earlier versions of this document (search info blocking on my blog and you’ll get them).

I was prompted by hospital leadership, as we rebuilt our “physician/APP onboarding” education plan, on how to explain Open Notes and Open Results to our newest providers. I thought of including our latest document from 2020 (wow, that is 6 internet generations ago!), but there were lots of outdated statements.

CMIO’s take? Here you go! My up-to-date version of Information Blocking / Sharing / Open Notes, Open Results introductory document for our newest colleagues at UCHealth; feel free to share amongst yourselves. If you make improvements, please let me know! We’re always looking to improve.
