Panel to Establish Standards for Healthcare Electronic Enrollment Data

A panel is slated to determine standards for the electronic exchange of eligibility and enrollment data among state and federal social services next month, according to Government Health IT.

The panel will be headed by U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra and Sam Karp, vice president of programs for the California HealthCare Foundation when the group comes together.

“The question is how to make that triage and enrollment process easy to happen,“ said Dr. David Blumenthal, the national health IT coordinator at a Health IT Policy Committee meeting last week, according to Government Health IT. “In the electronic age, this is a fundamental part of the process for getting our population insured.“

Blumenthal says that the standards would reach out to where the people are going for help.

“Think about the people who don't have insurance (and) where they have contact now with federal or state government or other public authorities that could channel them into an insurance arrangement,“ said Blumenthal.  “It's places like [Women Infant and Children] programs, Head Start program, schools, the motor vehicle department, or a whole range of social service organizations that could potentially be where they go for services,“ he said at the meeting.
