It has enabled measurable improvements in health outcomes and is central to our ability to deliver high quality lifetime care to a large and varied Veteran population.


VistA/CPRS worked, but it was clunky! The process for writing a non-VA prescription was a nightmare. Trying to find outside medical records was a whole night of nightmares. And, you could populate an entire note with templated data objects and not actually need to enter anything about the actual current patient encounter.


Vista is a pain, but you could get what you need.
