The Department of Veterans Affairs is developing a set of metrics to evaluate progress in digital transformation programs across the VA enterprise, FedScoop reported Wednesday.

James Gfrerer, chief information officer of VA, said at a health information technology summit Wednesday the scorecard under development is nearly 80 percent complete and designed to monitor the status of modernization work on various IT platforms.

"We're going to get a lot more focused around those measures, those metrics, those outcomes around the specific projects and start to be a bit more deliberate on what programs are succeeding or not," Gfrerer added, according to report.

He plans to discuss the scorecard development effort with members of Congress later this week. Gfrerer noted he expects VA to migrate 350 systems and applications to an enterprise cloud computing infrastructure by 2024.
