Streamlined online medical records among proposals

July 27, 2007

Today, the Cleveland Plain Dealer focused on one of the recommendations of the Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors. Specifically, they note the recommendation to improve family and veteran access to online medical records and disability benefits. Touting C. Martin Harris, CIO of the Cleveland Clinic, the article notes:

“Using aspects of the Clinic model, the federal commission has recommended that the VA and the Pentagon create a Web
site called “My eBenefits” that would allow doctors and service members to access private medical information as the injured move from facility to facility to receive treatment.” The recommendation also includes better sharing of information between the military and Veteran’s Administration medical systems.

Let’s hope these are implemented in a timely manner to fix this shameful problem.
