AHLTA Continues to Disappoint

,----[ Quote ]
| As I’ve mentioned in the past, VistA has quite a lot going for it: the VA has
| improved productivity by 6 percent a year since it was implemented in VA
| hospitals nation-wide; VistA has helped the VA cut its health care costs by
| 32 percent since 1996; and the VistA computerized prescription system is
| incredibly accurate, correctly matching patients and medication 99.997
| percent of the time. It makes little sense to ignore this homegrown asset
| when setting out to build a broader DoD EMR system. Worse still, AHLTA can’t
| even communicate with VistA, adding a new layer of dysfunction to the
| military’s IT development.
