In today's FederalNewsRadio.com - a follow-up to a RAINDrop I posted a
couple of weeks ago.  Appears DOD wants to start all over again...

<snip>
Ever since the Defense Department and the Veterans Affairs Department
decided to step back from their approach to building a joint
electronic health record earlier this year, DoD has been searching for
a new electronic records system. As DoD nears a decision point, VA is
making the case that its own system, VistA, would make a great fit for
both departments.

The two departments' original vision was to build a single electronic
health record that would follow a service member from the time he or
she enlisted in the military to the time they exited VA care. Both
agencies say that's still the fundamental goal, but under a revised
program they announced last month, rather than building a record
system from scratch, they'll each start from separate "core
technology" starting points and focus more on sharing data than
integrating their systems.
