Statement on the Passage of VA Mission Act

Statement by The Sequoia Project CEO Mariann Yeager on Passage of the VA MISSION Act (H.R. 5674/ S. 2193)

“For many years, we’ve seen veterans and their providers frustrated because veteran health records were not accessible to private sector providers due to an administrative issue. The VA Mission Act provides an important fix that will unlock veteran health records to enable the providers who care for veterans to make better informed decisions and coordinate care regardless of whether they are treated at a VA medical facility or in the private sector.”

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to support health IT interoperability between the department and partner providers but our success was limited by an outdated congressional mandate – until now.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.”
