New Health Care Info System Will Help Veterans Treatment


by Rob JohnsonHealth-Veterans


The Department of Veterans Affairs segment in Northwest Florida has joined several civilian hospitals to share certain health care information as a way of speeding and improving treatment.
Named the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record health program, the information-sharing system is voluntary for veterans and for the participating community hospitals.
Veterans often receive care from both the VA and civilian hospitals. The VA said the new information-sharing system can foster more efficient care and convenience for veterans and their families by reducing the amount of medical records they need to carry between health care providers.
The system is supposed to allow private health care personnel data such as a list of health problems that include allergies and medications so they can make more faster and more informed decisions and recommendations.
