Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM)
The Future of Health Care Management at VA.
VA was the pioneer of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) with the development of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), VA’s legacy system. However, after almost 40 years of use, VistA lacks the interoperability necessary to better serve our Veterans and is simply too costly to maintain.
Adopting the same EHR system as the Department of Defense (DoD) is a Veteran-centric approach that will support service members as they transition from military service, drive better clinical outcomes by giving health care providers a full picture of patient medical history, and enhance collaboration with community care partners.
