Veterans Affairs to lead on non-proprietary health records?

The United States military has long been a leader in innovation, especially in medical care, but it seems that Veterans Affairs may be leading Department of Defense towards non-proprietary health record software.

Telegenisys was founded back in 1994 for the task of linking legacy systems into customer focused business processes and we hope that just like with the Internet, jet engines and digital photography, the benefits of military innovation will be quickly copied in the commercial sector.

Of course even when you do get systems that handle the new standard, you will still have vast piles of old format records and old format legacy systems. Which is exactly the kind of work Telegenisys does every day.

Postscript

In June 2017, U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. David J. Shulkin announced that the VA would be implementing a commercial system from Cerner.
