Report: Navy Begins Service Treatment Records Transfer to The VA

recordThe U.S. Navy started scanning and transferring service treatment records to the Department of Veterans Affairs in December to meet an early 2014 deadline, Nextgov reported Thursday.

Bob Brewin writes the Navy awarded Anacomp an 18-month, $5 million contract to scan treatment records of discharged Navy and Marine personnel.

Navy hospitals will send the treatment records to Anacomp rather than to the Navy Bureau of Medicine under the interim contract, while BUMED is developing a long-term service for that process, according to the report.

Anacomp worked to integrate processes between the Navy and VA, outline the rules of the process, identify the needed infrastructure, address security issues and test the information technology service required to meet the deadline, the report says.

Brewin writes all the Navy and Marine personnel treatment records have been transferred to Anacomp as of Jan. 1 for scanning.
