VA Renews Oracle Contract for EHR Modernization

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently announced the extension of its contract with Oracle Health to support the VA’s Federal Electronic Health Record modernization.

Under this renewed agreement, VA and Oracle Health will continue their collaboration to implement the Federal EHR, following the reset initiative launched last year. The contract anticipates facilitating pre-deployment and deployment activities at new sites in fiscal year 2025, pending the achievement of reset objectives by the VA.

“Executing the second option period of the contract allows VA and Oracle Health to continue to drive forward on the goals of the reset and future deployments. VA remains committed to holding ourselves and our vendors accountable for resolving challenges with deployment of the Federal EHR and moving forward productively,” said VA Deputy Secretary Tanya Bradsher in a press release.

The VA adds that negotiations for the second option period are concentrated on two primary goals– enhancing value-added services such as system improvements and optimizations and achieving greater predictability in hosting, deployment, and sustainment, with a strong focus on fiscal responsibility. 

VA will continuously assess and align future option periods to ensure optimal progress in its Federal EHR modernization endeavors.
