Chris Miller: DoD, VA to integrate their electronic health records

For almost a decade, Congress has been hounding the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs to integrate their electronic health records. Later this week, DoD will file paperwork saying it’s lived up to its side of the bargain — and that it now complies with national standards for sharing health IT data. Chris Miller is DoD’s program executive officer for healthcare management systems. He talked with Federal News Radio’s Jared Serbu about the steps the two departments have taken over the past two years to make their health data more interoperable.
