Proud saluting male army soldier on american flag background (Memorial day, Veteran's day, 4th of july, Independence day)According to a recent report on Health Care IT News, The US Department of Veteran Affairs will shift to a commercial electronic health records (EHR) systems, moving away from the VistA system that it had previously developed in-house.

VistA had been developed to initially to serve both the VA and the U.S. Department of Defense, however last year it was confirmed that each organisation would develop their own system. The VA has, since that point, struggled to develop a system adequate for their needs, thus the focus towards 3rd party commercially-available solutions.

VA Secretary David Shulkin, MD, said “I’ve come to the conclusion that VA building its own software products and doing its own software development inside is not a good way to pursue this. We need to move toward commercially-tested products.

This is potentially good news for Grace Century’s EHR project partner The Quantum Group. Quantum CEO Noel Guillama said “The industry about to make a huge leap. We are ready to jump in- we can compete, not for this but for doctors and MSO/ACO looking for real solutions”

One of the great benefits of PWeR is that it can collect and assemble all of an individual’s medical information from any point on the planet, and then store that data centrally, securely in one place, or online. Similarly, PWeR can then use the Internet to project it to any point on earth, on demand, as required, and in a secure manner. PWeR is capable of this, but in some places, communication of such large amounts of data is impractical and/or expensive. Predictive Path Protocol is a communication technique designed to resolve that limitation, inexpensively, at any remote point.
