The State of the Federal EHR
On November 14, 2023, the Federal Electronic Health Record Modernization (FEHRM) office hosted The State of the Federal EHR (the 15th meeting, formerly known as the FEHRM Industry Roundtable). This event is held twice a year to discuss the current and future state of the federal electronic health record (EHR), health information technology and health information exchange. It also highlights the progress of the FEHRM, Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to implement a single, common federal EHR and related capabilities.
The theme for the November event was “Achieving Data-Driven Outcomes in the Federal EHR.” The meeting featured updates from FEHRM, DOD, VA, USCG and NOAA leaders on their federal EHR efforts as well as an interactive discussion panel focused on data-driven insights to enhance the delivery of health care for Service members, Veterans and other beneficiaries.
This event was virtual via Microsoft Teams and open to the public. We invited active participation from individuals who possess relevant broad-based knowledge and experience.
