Social Security serves as one of the leading federal agencies in health IT.

The request is to have 15 million medical records from almost 500,000 providers to make decisions on about three million disability claims annually. This makes Social Security one of the largest disability programs in the world.

Since 2008, Social Security is leading an initiative to enable the electronic exchange of health information to improve the disability determination process.

The goal of health IT is to reduce the burden on health care providers and offer applicants faster and more consistent disability decisions.

Social Security team has experience in electronic health records exchange. They actively attend leading conferences and knowledge exchange events on health IT. In addition, they continually evaluate their processes to adapt to changes in the field.

The CAL (Compassionate Allowances List) process is a way of quickly identifying diseases and other medical conditions that invariably qualify under the Listing of Impairments based on minimal objective medical information. The CAL process allows them to target quickly the most obviously disabled individuals for allowances based on objective medical evidence that they can obtain quickly.
