VA spent $1.1 billion in 5 years on EHR modernization
from Modern Healthcare
The Veterans Affairs Department spent $1.1 billion in five years on modernizing two EHR systems, according to a new Government Accountability Office report. The VA spent that money between 2011 and 2016 on VistA Evolution, a modernized version of its homegrown EHR, and on iEHR, an integrated system with the Defense Department. Both efforts are now nearly moot, since the VA has decided to replace its EHR with one made by Cerner, the same company that makes the Defense Department's system.
