Electronic Health Record Modernization
Proudly providing quality health care for Veterans is one of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA’s) highest priorities. To support this mission, the Jonathan M. Wainwright VA and its community-based outpatient clinics are excited to be the second VA medical facility to 'go live' with VA’s new electronic health record (EHR) March 26, 2022. This is a Veteran-centric approach that will better support service members as they transition from military service to Veteran status.
What is Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM)?
Providing quality health care for Veterans is one of the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA’s) highest priorities. VA has established the Electronic Health Record Modernization Integration Office (EHRM IO) to oversee the implementation of the same best-in-industry EHR that is being deployed by the Department of Defense (DoD).
Three major components of EHRM:
- Implement a new EHR solution that is interoperable with DOD and community care providers, enabling the seamless sharing of records from active duty and beyond.
- Provide Veterans and clinicians with a complete picture of patients’ medical history, driving connections between military service and health outcomes through data analytics.
- Offer an improved and consistent patient scheduling experience at VA medical facilities and community care partners nationwide.
