VA Electronic Health Record Transparency Act Passed

Last week President Joe Biden signed into law a bill aimed at increasing transparency into the process that the VA takes when handling veterans’ electronic medical records.

According to an article published by Stars and Stripes, the bill was first introduced in December 2021 “…following a series of reports from the VA’s inspector general which raised concerns regarding the rollout of the EHM program. Concerns included issues involving the program’s cost and VA’s failure to collect data to provide an accurate picture of how the program’s implementation is progressing at the Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center in Spokane, Wash.”
