Description
 
Statement of Valerie C. Melvin, Dir., Info. Mngt. and Tech. Resources Issues, GAO. The Depts. of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Defense (DOD) operate two of the nation劌製 largest health care systems, which serve populations of veterans and active service members and their dependents. VA and DOD have been collaborating for about 15 years on a variety of initiatives to share data among the depts.劌 health info. systems. The use of info. tech. (IT) to electronically collect, store, retrieve, and transfer such data has the potential to improve the quality and efficiency of health care. Particularly important is developing electronic health records that can be accessed throughout a patient劌製 military and veteran status. This can ensure greater availability of health care information for service members and veterans at the time and place of care. Although they share many common business needs, both VA and DOD have spent large sums of money to develop and maintain separate electronic health record systems that they use to create and manage patient health information. This testimony discusses (1) the depts.劌 efforts, and challenges faced, in electronically sharing health information and (2) the recent change in their approach to developing an integrated electronic health record. This is a print on demand report.
