VA’s Laura Prietula Unpacks EHR System ‘Reset’

With a new path forward, VA Deputy CIO Laura Prietula discusses next steps for its Oracle-Cerner EHR system and rollout.

The Department of Veterans Affairs reset its electronic health record modernization program in April, halting all future rollouts of the system, with the exception of the James A Lovell Federal Health Care Center in North Chicago, which will launch in concert with the FEHRM and DHA in March 2024. Since the reset, the agency has focused on improving the functionality and operations at five sites that currently use the new EHR. Its path forward includes a new Oracle-Cerner contract on May 16 to deliver the high-functioning, high-reliability, world-class electronic health record that veterans deserve.

VA Deputy CIO of the Electronic Health Record Modernization Integration Office Laura Prietula discusses next steps following the reset and explains the importance of leadership throughout the large-scale implementation.
