Blogging, blogging, blogging

So after the whirlwind National Health IT Week was over, our ONC peeps needed a breather and so the folks over at the Department of Veterans Affairs, who have our back, decided to blog about Blue Button on the Veterans Health Administration's blog! You can also read about how these Veterans are using #bluebutton to view, download and transmit their own health data on our Buzz Blog!
