COMPUTER-BASED PATIENT RECORDS: Sound Planning and Project Management are Needed to Achieve a Two Way Exchange of VA and DOD Health Data
A critical component of the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) information technology program is its ongoing work with the Department of Defense (DOD) to achieve the ability to exchange patient health care data and create electronic records for use by veterans, active military personnel, and their health care providers. GAO testified before the Subcommittee last November that one-way sharing of data, from DOD to VA medical facilities, had been realized. At the Subcommittee's request, GAO assessed, among other matters, VA's and DOD's progress since that time toward defining a detailed strategy for and developing the capability of a two way exchange of patient health information.
