Marina Martin: VA’s New Open Data Website Designed for Interagency Collaboration

Veterans Affairs Department logoA new Department of Veterans Affairs open data website has launched to help the public and developers integrate information into applications and services, the VA’s chief technology officer told Federal News Radio.

Marina Martin also told the station the website is intended as a single authoritative source of information and to collaborate across agencies in open data.

“Things like lists of dialysis centers can be compared with census data that can be compared with HHS data on different chronic illness outcomes to really make some interesting visualizations and insights,” Martin said.

“We want to provide that same service for people searching for veteran resources and frankly resources across the federal government,” she added.
