The U.S. Department of Defense's proposed electronic health system is estimated to cost approximately $11 billion, according to an FCW report.

The DoD decided to acquire its own EHR system to better coordinate with the Veterans Affairs Department and be interoperable with the VA EHR system. The proposed EHR will track the medical and dental care of the 9.8 million active military personnel and their dependents.

Epic and IBM have partnered to present a proposal integrating Epic's EHR software with IBM's systems integration, operations and change management.
