VOE stands for VistA Office Electronic Health Record (EHR)
VistA-Office EHR is a high-quality, low-cost electronic health record (EHR)for primary care. It is supported by a collaboration between the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Veterans Health Administration, Iowa Foundation and WorldVistA.
- VOE Project
- The foundation for WorldVistA EHR was developed as part of the VistA-Office EHR (VOE) project, a collaborative effort funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The overall goal of the project was to encourage the broader adoption and effective use of EHRs among physicians by making an affordable, robust, proven EHR solution alternative available.
- CCHIT Certification
- After completion of the VOE project, WorldVistA made additional enhancements and successfully submitted WorldVistA EHR for certification by CCHIT. As a CCHIT Certified product, WorldVistA EHR VOE/ 1.0 has been tested and passed inspection of 100 percent of a set of criteria for functionality (ability to create and manage electronic records for all patients, as well as automating workflow in a physician's office), interoperability (a first step in the ability to receive and send electronic data to other entities such as laboratories), and security (ability to keep patients' information safe).
- The VOE codebase is the foundation for all WorldVistA EHR VOE (1.0, 2.0, and 3.0) codebases see the http://worldvista.org/World_VistA_EHR page on worldvista.org
