Information Week, July 14, 2009
Under a spending authorization bill approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee, the Veterans Administration would get $3.31 billion to spend on information technology in 2010. Much of that money would go toward electronic medical records projects at the VA, as well as the integration of those medical records with the medical records kept by the Department of Defense. In all, the committee recommendation includes $800 million for new program development.
