Customer Experience Milestone: VA launches new Electronic Health Record System

In a landmark event for Veteran health care, VA rolled out its new electronic health record system Oct. 24 at select medical facilities in the Pacific Northwest. This technology will help create a better health care and patient experience for Veterans. The EHR will be implemented at facilities across the country over a 10-year period. Veterans who receive care at facilities with the new EHR will also have access to a new patient portal.


While Customer Experience recognition month concludes, VA's 420,000+ dedicated employees will continue to work with, and for, our Veterans, their families, caregivers, and survivors to ensure they are at the center of everything we do.
