Description/Abstract

This brief is about non-federal physicians' perspectives on the organization and delivery of dual care for veterans. In policy and practice, patients should tell non-VHA physicians when VHA physicians change the patients' medications, and veterans should keep track of their health records, appointments, tests, treatments, and medications to support communication between dual care physicians; non-VHA and VHA physicians should improve communication between each other and adopt Electronic Medical Records. Suggestions for future research include improving survey response rates, using electronic surveys, carefully constructing the survey questions, and looking at the availability and compatibility of Electronic Medical Records between VHA and non-VHA providers.
