SSA issues RFI for automated records retrieval

The Social Security Administration wants to develop a prototype of a system that would automatically pull information from electronic health records to more easily deal with the more than 2.5 million disability claims it receives each year, reports Government Health IT.

In a request for information published Nov. 21, SSA invited vendors, health providers and payers to suggest how such a process could be set up. Responses are due Dec. 11.

SSA already is conducting a pilot project for records retrieval with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and the Cleveland Clinic.
