Integrate IHS and VHA electronic medical records

Integrate Indian Health Service electronic medical records records with VHA records, so VHA providers can access IHS records, and IHS providers can access VHA records

 

This would decrease:

1) Time VHA providers and nurses spend trying to obtain IHS records

2) Time Health Information scanners spend scanning IHS records, once obtained

3) Duplication of services

4) Delays in care of Veterans, who go to both IHS and VHA providers
