Today, on this week’s Federal News Radio Federal Executive Forum webcast, Mr. Jim Borland, Special Advisor for Health IT, Office of the Commissioner, Social Security Administration
(SSA), will discuss the value of health care information technology. His comments included the following:

  • Every disability benefit claimant must have their medical records reviewed. Once the claimant authorizes medical record release, they are typically received by fax today. Fifteen million request for medical records from over 500,000 physicians and 6000 hospitals are processed every year.
  • Health care information technology offers a tremendous opportunity to improve and automate the collection of medical records and to use decision support tools to analyse those records before a human looks at them.
  • Improved health care IT will give the SSA the ability to make claims related decisions faster, dramatic reducing required processing time by up to one-third.
  • A key challenge is for us to identify data standards that can be used across multiple different business processes.

The Federal Executive Forum panel participants are:

  • Vish Sankaran- Program Director, Federal Health Architecture, Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
  • Linda Fischetti- RN MS, Health Informatics Architect, Future Health Systems Design and Usability, Health Information Architecture, Veterans Health Administration
  • Dr. Leslie Lenert- MD, MS, FACMI , Director of the National Center for Public Health Informatics (NCPHI) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
