New Rules to Govern Health Information Exchange Approved by OHCA Board 

The Oklahoma Health Care Authority Board has approved the proposed emergency rules to implement the statewide health information exchange. 

These emergency rules will take effect immediately upon the approval and signature of Governor J. Kevin Stitt.

OHCA is thankful for the feedback of Oklahoma patients and providers in creating these emergency rules which encourages improved collaboration among different healthcare providers while protecting a patient’s right to privacy. OHCA remains committed to creating a streamlined, holistic health care approach and improving health outcomes for Oklahomans through the HIE. 

The new rules include:

  • Broad exemptions that allow any provider seeking an exemption to be granted one; 

  • Refined and added definitions;

  • Clarification on required participation;

  • Continued adherence to state and federal law regarding patient disclosure and consent;

  • Defined fees, including participation fee, connection fee and grant funds to cover connection fees.
