Transforming Health Care for Veterans, Revolutionizing Health Care for All

Over the next 10 years, VA will move from using its current electronic health record (EHR) system — the software that stores health information and tracks all aspects of patient care — to a new system that will link in with the Department of Defense’s patient records and unify all VA facilities on one system. The program that will manage VA’s steady transition to the new EHR is called Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM).

How does EHRM affect Veterans’ health?

The new system will transform health care for Veterans by providing a seamless and paperless transition from receiving care as a service member at DoD to receiving care as a Veteran at VA facilities.

When does the new system go live?

VA medical centers in the Pacific Northwest have been selected as the initial sites to deploy the new EHR system starting in October 2020.

Where can I learn more?

VA understands that change of this magnitude will not be easy. Hands-on support will be provided throughout the implementation process to ensure success.
