In view of the Health Care Reform Act, I am suggesting that SSA get authorization from SSA clients to release their e-medical record to Health and Human Service and other appropriate federal agenciies. As you know, SSA take a lots of disability applications for clients filing for disability benefits and in the process get a lots of medical records and information. This medical information could be use for the Health Reform Act with appropriate authorization from clients. This could be done by adding a field on the SSA-827, 3368 and the new I-3368. The field should read ' I authorize SSA to release my e-medical records to HHS and other federal agencies for health care reform purposes.
