The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) wants to make eight of its record systems available to public health authorities and their delegates.

The goal would be to help authorities identify individuals who may need health assistance in the event of a disaster or other incident, and to help authorities plan and provide assistance, CMS says in a systems change notice set to appear in the Federal Register Tuesday.
