HAPPY VETERANS DAY!
|One Way NATE Celebrates
Welcoming a Membership Application from the Department of Veterans Affairs
NATE is thrilled to celebrate Veterans Day by accepting a new membership application from the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The VA has always led the way in giving veterans access to their health information – first by being the earliest champions of the Blue Button initiative and now by being the first federal agency to join NATE. Becoming a member of NATE will open additional opportunities for the VA to empower veterans to better use their health information to improve outcomes.
