John Pulley | Nextgov | November 14, 2012

The Department of Veterans Affairs seeks a contractor to develop an application that will view images from the VistA electronic health record on mobile devices.

In a request for information posted earlier this month on, the VA said it wanted to expand mobile viewing of diagnostic images such as X-rays, CT and PET scans, ultrasound and angiography beyond the iPad. The idea is to “expedite diagnosis and treatment planning, facilitating communication among radiologists and referring clinicians.”
