VA reports EHR disruption

Multiple VA medical facilities across the U.S. reported an EHR slowdown earlier this week, according to The Spokesman-Review.

An EHR update caused "performance degradation," according to the report, and the VA confirmed changes to the system interrupted services and connectivity to the network. The disruption meant users had to wait for "long intervals" to navigate between screens, slowing patient care.

More than half of the Military Health System providers reported disruptions, which lasted more than 24 hours. The VA worked with Oracle Cerner and the Department of Defense to remedy the situation.
