Medical Evidence Gathering and Analysis through Health Information Technology (MEGAHIT)
In 2004, President Bush issued an Executive Order calling for most Americans to have an electronic patient record by 2014. The healthcare industry is taking major steps toward maintaining and processing medical information in an electronic and data driven format.
Health Information Technology (HIT) allows the use of industry standard formatting for both the content of medical records information and manner in which the information is shared.
The Social Security Association (SSA) has developed a strategy and vision for moving forward to implement HIT into the disability business process and to take advantage of this unique opportunity to revolutionize how we do business. This proactive initiative has given SSA extensive positive recognition in the HIT arena, and has established SSA as a HIT leader in the U.S. Federal Government.
