DOS Electronic Medical Exam Rollout

https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-09-05/pdf/2017-18653.pdf

Department of State posted a Federal Register 60-day notice and request for comments on a new eMedical system into which panel physicians will input visa applicants' medical exam information. DOS anticipates a full rollout by the end of 2018. Comments are due 11/6/17. (82 FR 42010, 9/5/17)

"Approved panel physicians will be granted access to an eMedical system by the Department of State, to conduct medical examinations for visa eligibility determinations. During the initial rollout, some immigrant visa applicants with a completed and submitted DS-260, Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration will have their medical exam results submitted to the Department via the eMedical system.

The panel physician will input the exam information into the eMedical portal and it will be transmitted to the Department for visa adjudication and retained in the Department's systems. The Department anticipates a full rollout of the electronic medical report by the end of 2018. During the transition

to eMedical, some applicants' medical exams will be completed via paper forms."
