Create a national VHA SharePoint for CPRS templates, and allow any CPRS user to post and download templates. To make templates easier to find on the SharePoint site, group templates of each type.
Standardize CPRS template fields and CPRS template patient data objects, so templates written at one VHA will work at other VHAs without editing all the template fields and template patient data objects.
This will save template development time.
Add a link from within CPRS electronic medical record for submitting suggestions for improving CPRS, and have CPRS link send these suggestions to the national CPRS developers
