Electronic Health Records: DoD and VA Interoperability Efforts are Ongoing; Program Office Needs to Implement Recommended Improvements
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 31 pages
The Nat. Defense Authorization Act for FY 2008 required the DoD and the VA to accelerate their exchange of health information and to develop capabilities that allow for interoperability (the ability of systems to exchange data) by Sept. 30, 2009. It also required compliance with federal standards and the establishment of a joint interagency program office to function as a single point of accountability for the effort. This report determined the extent to which: (1) DoD and VA developed and implemented electronic health record systems or capabilities that allowed for full interoperability by Sept. 30, 2009; and (2) the interagency program office established by the act is functioning as a single point of accountability.
