“Despite the massive electronic health record systems used by the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments, neither department tracks the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, according to a report from the Institute of Medicine.
The two agencies don’t keep track of the PTSD services they provide and whether they work, the report reveals. Such treatment varies from base to base, and if similar services are provided, they may be carried out in varying ways. The report insists that both agencies do better.”
