VA Offices Receive Digital Medical File Mgmt System

ComputerPointerThe U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs completed a $105 million project last week to provide an electronic database to 56 regional offices for storing, organizing and updating disability claims, Nextgov reported Monday.

Bob Brewin writes the VA enlisted the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic in January to complete the transition to the Veterans Benefits Management System that was launched in 2010.

VA Secretary Eric Shinseki said the paperless initiative aims to process all pending requests by 2015 as Congress also gave the organization a 90-day deadline to create certified computerize records for veterans, according to Nextgov.

Brewin reports an amendment of the 2014 Defense Authorization Bill passed Friday calls on the Defense Department to establish digital platforms for veterans’ accounts.
