Veterans affairs sign

Less than a month after he was confirmed as secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, David Shulkin, M.D., said the VA is officially switching to a commercial, off-the-shelf EHR system, replacing its frequently maligned VistA software.

Shulkin made the announcement during a hearing before the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs discussing the VA’s Choice Program aimed at improving community health options for veterans.
