Sloan Gibson: VA, Pentagon Move Toward Interoperable EHR Systems

EHRSloan Gibson, deputy secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs, has said efforts are underway at VA and the Defense Department to make the agencies’ electronic health record systems interoperable, Federal Times reported Monday.

Aaron Boyd writes DoD established interoperability as one the goals of its Defense Health Management System Modernization program.

A team of Leidos, Cerner and Accenture won the multibillion contract to help the department update its military health system.

VA is building a fourth-generation Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture and expects to finish development work in 2018, according to Federal Times.

The departments’ goal is to ensure that DHMS and VistA would work together.

DoD and VA have adopted middleman software to bring their data into a standardized format and seek to implement a common standard reporting language, Boyd reports.
