VA goes live with modernized EHR

Dave Nyczepir has the story.

The GitLab platform agreed to provide the ATARC DevOps Working Group access to its technology so teams can collaborate using source code management. The working group’s DevSecOps Project Team will create a continuous integration, continuous delivery (CI/CD) software pattern — which leverages automation during development, testing and deployment — that agencies can use as they begin DevSecOps. Dave has this one too.
