Social Security to Continue Use of Electronic Medical Records

The Social Security Administration is renewing contracts with private vendors to accelerate the use of electronic medical record transmission. According to Boca Raton Social Security Disability attorney, Randy Zeldin, Esq., the use of Continuity of Care Documents is a step forward in streamlining the SSD application process.

After an initial application to the Social Security Administration is made, requests for medical records are often made and thereafter transmitted via U.S. mail. It is obvious that this process is harmful to the many Social Security applicants in Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, states attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq.

Eventually, as the health care system is reformed further, most medical records will be available electronically to be shared with the Social Security Administration. Longer and longer waits are causing great suffering and hardship to disabled persons in South Florida, according to Social Security Disability expert Randy Zeldin, Esq., with offices in Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Boca Raton
