Next Generation Systems

The key health information technologies (IT) to be deployed by health care provider organizations in the U.S. over the next decade include standards-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems interconnected via Health Information Exchange (HIE) networks. Medical imaging will be key component of these systems. In addition, Personal Health Record (PHR) systems, mobile health apps (mHealth), and social health networks will be widely used by the end of the decade. Many of these have already been done by the VA and are a part of the existing VistA architecture and activities.
