Health IT vendors generally express support for HHS info blocking disincentives

The intended penalties, which could be substantial for noncompliant systems, are designed to discourage such practices. However, industry groups, including hospitals and physician groups, argue the disincentives are too harsh and could be counterproductive to the broader objective of value-based care. Meanwhile, others within the industry express a more optimistic view, emphasizing the importance of avoiding information blocking for patient care and the advancement of interoperability.
