Tyrone C. Marshall Jr. writes Miller described the Pentagon’s partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs to make their healthcare systems interoperable at an Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association event Wednesday in Bethesda, Md.

Miller told the audience the project’s goal is to provide a continuum of military health services to current and former soldiers.

He also said the EHR infrastructure must be capable of sharing data between the two departments in order for them to serve their more than 9.6 million beneficiaries, AFPS reports.
