Pentagon Taking IT Lead For Joint VA EHR System; Jonathan Woodson Comments

The Defense Department will provide the majority of information technology architecture for the Pentagon’s joint electronic health record system with the Department of Veterans Affairs, Nextgov’s Bob Brewin reports.

Dr. Jonathan Woodson, assistant defense secretary for health affairs, said in an April report to Congress that the Defense Information Systems Agency will save the health records in its data centers and the Defense Manpower Data Center will provide identity-management services, Brewin wrote.

At the top of the list of priorities is purchasing commercially-available software for the joint system, according to the Pentagon’s report.

Harris Corp. holds an $80 million contract to introduce middleware as a virtualized infrastructure, with the goal of VA and Pentagon users primarily using the cloud to access health data.
