Electronic Health Record Modernization
Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM) at Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center in Spokane, WA.
Providing quality health care for Veterans is one of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA’s) highest priorities. To support this mission, VA established the Office of Electronic Health Record Modernization (OEHRM) to oversee the implementation of the same best-in-industry electronic health record (EHR) that is being deployed by the Department of Defense (DoD). This is a Veteran-centric approach that will better support service members as they transition from military service to Veteran status.
When fully operational, the system will be the single source of Veteran health information for patients and providers. However, the EHR modernization effort is not just about implementing new technology. It is a catalyst for fundamental change in how VA delivers Veteran-focused, provider-friendly care.
EHRM has three major components:
1. 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.
2. Provide Veterans and clinicians with a complete picture of patients’ medical history, driving connections between military service and health outcomes through data analytics.
3. Offer an improved and consistent patient scheduling experience at VA medical facilities and community care partners nationwide.
