The government assault on VistA

The best thing the VA has going for it is VistA, it’s universal electronic record system.

I have used it extensively as a medical student and resident, and it works well. If the government were serious about implementing electronic records, it would install and support physicians for using VistA completely free of charge.

Instead, they’re killing it. Yeah, doesn’t make sense to me either.
