Plano, TX March 8, 2022: MedSys Group responded favorably to the announcement of a new agreement between Cerner and Social Security Administration (SSA) on February 17, 2022. This effort will speed up the transfer and process of healthcare claims, a huge benefit to thousands of veterans, alleviating challenges for families through quicker access to monthly cash benefits. This comes as enlightening news for MedSys Group, one of several IT consultancies that specializes in implementing Cerner technology solutions for healthcare systems throughout North America.
Healthcare providers will experience advantages resulting from this collaboration, as it will automate data aims to ease administrative burdens, reduce costs, and labor as well as eliminate the mailing of paper records. It can also mean fewer consultative medical examinations, plus earlier access to medical insurance coverage and other social service benefits. In addition, the agreement creates other potential benefits for healthcare providers:
- Reduction of uncompensated care, since faster disability determinations may result in patients having quicker access to Medicare and Medicaid benefits
- Automated payments from SSA (Social Security Administration)
Each year, the SSA requests more than fifteen million medical records from healthcare providers to help make decisions on more than four million disability claims. Most of the medical records currently received by SSA are either faxed or mailed scanned images, an awkward process which causes delays in the disability determination process.
“MedSys Group is encouraged by this collaborative agreement,” noted Alan Kravitz, CEO, MedSys Group. “It will enormously streamline processing and improve patient satisfaction by streamlining the technology and communication,” he added.
As a strategic part of the comprehensive team of some of the country’s most esteemed industry leaders, MedSys Group is dedicated to helping integrate relevant modernization such as the Cerner and SSA commitment to healthcare systems.
