Congress backs $4.2B IT fund for VA Dept.

House and Senate appropriations subcommittees have backed bills to fund the Veterans Affairs Department, according to FCW.

The department will receive $4.2 billion in IT funding, which is the amount the Obama Administration requested.

The bills also include language restricting funding for VistA modernization efforts at the department until it can prove that it can exchange electronic health data with the Defense Department and private-sector medical providers without any glitches, FCW reported.
