The Veterans Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VISTA) EHR, more formally known as
the VistA Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS), is an open source nationwide veterans clinical
and business information system of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. VistA handles more than 8
million veterans records and supports the clinical, administrative, and financial operations of over 1800
hospitals and clinics of the VHA. Facilities range from small clinics that provide solely outpatient care to
large medical centers with significant inpatient populations and their associated specialties, such as
surgical care, pain management or dermatology.
The platform focuses on clinically relevant record data that improves patient care by improving clinical
and administrative decision-making. The records system supports HL7 standards for HIE (health
information exchange) and is used in ambulatory, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. It includes
modules for CPOE, laboratory tests, E-prescriptions, patient care diet orders, MRIs and other clinical
documentation. As VA health care is free for veterans who qualify for medical services, there is no billing
module in VistA EHR.
It is currently available for download on the VA’s website. There are also a number of communities
further developing VistA separately from the VA, the most famous one being OSHERA.
