DoD, VA, to Share eHealth Records

Week of April 22, 2013

Seven out of ten Veterans and servicemembers obtain services from private health care providers, making it difficult for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) to maintain a complete record of a patient's health care. That is why VA and DoD actively participate in the eHealth Exchange, which is a partnership between 38 public and private organizations that, with a patient's permission, securely share health information. As the eHealth Exchange network continues to grow, VA and DoD plan to expand their health information sharing programs into additional regions of the U.S. For more information, visit the Government Health IT website.
