The Defense Department (DoD) is moving forward with their electronic heath record (EHR) project by issuing a request for proposals. This interesting information came from Dolphin News in their article, “DoD takes next step in modernizing electronic health records.”
The project plan is to modernize its electronic health records and allow the DoD to share health data with the private sector and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The department’s strategy is to engage the larger health information technology marketplace to help identify a solution approach that provides best value and meets operational requirements.
Electronic health records provide a way that healthcare providers can focus on improved accuracy. Making use of an EHR system can avoid dangerous record errors with the assistance of medical indexing programs like ICD Tagger. Any flagged or erroneous files are made easily available for review and corrections as necessary.
