Statement on the Passage of VA Mission Act

Statement by eHealth Exchange Vice President Jay Nakashima
on Passage of the VA MISSION Act (H.R. 5674/ S. 2193)

“Since its inception, the eHealth Exchange network has worked closely with the Department of Veteran Affairs to support health IT interoperability between the department and partner providers but our success was limited by an outdated congressional mandate – until now. With the passage of VA Mission Act, we hope to see exponential improvements in health data sharing between community providers and the Veterans Health Administration, with the resulting benefits of patient satisfaction and health outcomes.”
