This joint audit led by the DoD OIG examined actions taken by the DoD and VA regarding the Cerner Millennium electronic health record (EHR) system being deployed throughout VA and DoD. The audit assessed internal controls and compliance with legal requirements, as well as actions by DoD, VA, and their joint Federal Electronic Health Record Modernization (FEHRM) Program Office to help ensure that health care providers serving veterans can access a patient’s complete EHR. The audit focused on whether those actions would achieve interoperability between DoD, VA, and external health care providers.
