The Department of Corrections shall participate in the electronic health records system being implemented by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) and shall contract with the vendor with which DBHDS has contracted for electronic health records. Any nongeneral fund appropriation or general fund appropriation provided, or available for this purpose, shall be used by the Department of Corrections to begin implementation of an electronic health records system across the facilities in the department, with the first priority being implementation at the Fluvanna Correctional Center. The department shall begin to phase-in the system for facilities after July 1, 2019, based on a schedule developed as part of an inter-agency workgroup with the vendor, and based on the availability for funding."
