document Distributed Knowledge
The Veterans Affairs Department has started its online open-source community intended to leverage crowdsourced knowledge to update its Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA) electronic health record system, officials announced.

The website debuted on Aug. 30. The Open Source Electronic Health Record Agent will serve as the central governing body of a new open source Electronic Health Record community, according to a VA announcement.

The VA intends to modernize VistA with open-source code, and to use those applications in the joint digital record system being developed with the Defense Department.
