On April 21, 2023, VA announced that it is halting additional deployments of the new Federal electronic health record (EHR) until it is confident that the system is highly functioning at current sites and ready to deliver for Veterans and VA clinicians at future sites.

This readiness will be demonstrated by measurable improvements in the clinician and Veteran experience, sustained high performance and high reliability of the system, a return to expected levels of productivity at the sites where the EHR is in use, and more.

VA plans to exit the Reset and begin pre-deployment activities in FY 2025, at which time VA will release a new deployment schedule. The EHRM program is important to VA, and we are committed to making it happen. We need a single health record across the VA system and one that talks more effectively to the Department of Defense (DoD).

A list of sites that have deployed the Federal EHR are listed below.
