The Federal Times is reporting that a GAO study found that two years after a failed $59.9M effort to produce an Electronic Health Record system,
“…the service continues to rely on a paper management system. That poses serious risks for personnel, a new Government Accountability Office report argues.
“According to the report, Coast Guard regional managers and clinic and sick bay administrators warned the GAO they are “unable to adequately track vital information such as medications,” which puts personnel at risk of medical complications.”
I will just note that, I have Kaiser, and they already have an excellent Electronic Health Record system. Maybe we could use theirs.
Does DOD have a system, maybe we could use theirs.
