Veterans share views on VA’s health record transformation in new video
EHRM will improve delivery of care and simplify the patient experience. It will eliminate the need for Veterans to manage cumbersome printed health records, endure repeated tests, or relay basic information–such as drug allergies–to different providers.
In addition, clinicians will now be able to make smarter connections between military service and health outcomes for their patients. Innovative EHRM data analytics tools will revolutionize preventive care. This allows VA providers to identify health trends affecting Veterans who served in a particular time and place.
VA will continue to maintain and support its current EHR systems until all facilities have the new EHR solution. This makes current patient records accessible, with no interruption in the delivery of quality care to Veterans.
