The Open Source Electronic Health Record (EHR) Services project, led by PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP (PwC)* on behalf of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), will assist in the development of a VistA comparison tool called VOLDEMORT (Validation of Links, Data Dictionaries, Environment Routines, MUMPS code, Options, Routines and Templates). This tool will be used to identify differences between the open source EHR application (VistA-FOIA) and Production VistA instances in VA hospital and clinics.
This project’s objective is related to the need for an intimate understanding of the VistA architecture and code, and methodologies for analyzing and restructuring VistA code, data, and metadata.
Throughout the duration of the project, best practices of open source software and community involvement will be upheld. All developed software will be undergo certification via compliance with OSEHRA’s code contribution requirements.
Most of VOLDERMORT's documentation along with its code and discussions on how to use it are hosted on its GITHUB.
