Summary
The Office of the National Coordinator for Healthcare Technology finalizes health IT certification rules.

Health IT developers must report metrics giving insight into certified IT support for care delivery. AI transparency requirements are addressed while info-blocking definitions and exceptions are revised. The rule also includes a new Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement exception.
