VA Secretary announces decision on next-generation Electronic Health Record

Read About the Decision

Why Electronic Health Record Modernization?

The health and safety of our Veterans is one of our highest national priorities. VA is committed to providing seamless care for Veterans, including access to a complete electronic health record and shared, transparent care pathways. In order to ensure seamless care for Veterans, VA will move toward a single common system by adopting the electronic health record (EHR) system that is being deployed by DoD, which at its core consists of Cerner Millennium®.

From the Veteran perspective, having a common system will provide a single, accurate, lifetime health record. It will also result in improved patient care and safety.
