Panel Mulls Plans for Linking Social Service Eligibility Data
The Health IT Policy and Standards committees' enrollment work group is taking steps to help people who are enrolled in federal and state health and social services programs determine whether they qualify for benefits from other programs. During its meeting on Monday, the group examined a minimum set of standards, services and data elements that would be necessary for government agencies to electronically exchange program eligibility information. The work group must finalize its recommendations by Sept. 30 to meet requirements of the federal health reform law.
