"We live in a time when almost everything can be tailored to our personal wants and needs — except the way we access our healthcare information. Next year that will change. Most health systems still only offer one-size-fits-all, transactional-based patient portals. And while the number of adults nationwide who access those portals has increased in recent years — up 13 percentage points from 2014 to 2020 — usage is still low, with just 38% of Americans accessing their portal in 2020. But now, new interoperability rules and regulations, based on provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act, are being put in place to make it easier for patients to access and exchange their health information with their caregivers. The stars are finally aligning for health systems to meet patients’ expectations of personalized communication and offer an individualized experience." - Rebecca Tait
