Standards and Interoperability – DoD/VA Health Information Exchange

10:30am - 11:30am Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Delfino 4002

Description

The Military Health System (MHS) and Veterans Health Administration (VHA) are two large health systems serving the Nation’s military veterans. As veterans move between the MHS and VHA, the availability of treatment information from all sources of care is critical for delivery of safe, quality, and efficacious care. MHS and VHA have adopted Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) standards to assure interoperability and to support patient care. This session explores those standards and their application to facilitate health information exchange.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the ONC standards that support health information exchange
  • Identify the application of Health Information Technology (HIT) standards that facilitate MHS/VHA clinical data sharing
  • Evaluate opportunities for enhanced MHS/VHA interoperability in the future
