New interface to be rolled out to state Disability Determination offices in 2005
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. – January, 2005 – MRO Corporation, one of the nations most technologically advanced release-of-information (ROI) service companies, announced the availability of an interface to the Electronic Medical Evidence (EME) system being implemented by the Social Security Administration for delivery of medical records to state Disability Determination Services. This new system will be rolled out to the various state DDS offices in 2005.
Existing MRO clients are already compatible with the EME system since MRO has upgraded its ROI Online services to provide the SSA with documents in the format required. “Each DDS office has its own implementation schedule for using EME. MRO is in contact with each of these offices and we will start sending records electronically only after that office is ready and we’ve tested their interface”, said David Borden, MRO’s Chief Technology Officer.
ROI Online is designed for healthcare providers to efficiently process release-of-information requests in-house. Facility personnel receive the request, pull or access the chart, and send the requested information directly into ROI Online using MRO’s unique browser-based scanning and document capture systems. MRO processes the request from there, handling all the time consuming fulfillment requirements such as billing, collections, logging & tracking, requestor relations & communications, and physical distribution of the requested record. MRO remits a percentage of the revenue back to the facility on a monthly basis.
