"In 2010, the Coast Guard initiated an effort--known as IHiS [Integrated Health Information System]-- to replace its aging EHR [electronic health record] system with a new system that was to modernize various health care services for its nearly 50,000 military members. However, in October 2015, the Coast Guard announced that the modernization project would be canceled. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to summarize its report that is being released today on the Coast Guard's actions related to its EHR modernization initiative."
