VA, DoD to roll out early version of EHR

The Department of Veterans Affairs and DoD are planning on rolling out some of the early work they’ve done on a joint health records system. V-A says a preliminary version of the integrated electronic health record will go online by next year at hospitals in Hampton Roads, Virginia and San Antonio, Texas. The system will include the joint graphical user interface the two departments have already built. VA and DoD have been working to integrate their records to provide better care to servicemembers as they transition out of the military and into V-A care.
