THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE AND THE
DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS.

(a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
(1) the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Veterans
Affairs have failed to implement a solution that allows for
seamless electronic sharing of medical health care data; and
(2) despite the significant amount of read-only information
shared between the Department of Defense and Department of
Veterans Affairs, most of the information shared as of the date
of the enactment of this Act is not standardized or available in
real time to support all clinical decisions.

[[Page 795]]

(b) Implementation.--The Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of
Veterans Affairs--
(1) shall each ensure that the electronic health record
systems of the Department of Defense and the Department of
Veterans Affairs are interoperable with an integrated display of
data, or a single electronic health record, by complying with
the national standards and architectural requirements identified
by the Interagency Program Office of the Departments (in this
section referred to as the ``Office''), in collaboration with
the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information
Technology of the Department of Health and Human Services; and
(2) shall each deploy modernized electronic health record
software supporting clinicians of the Departments by no later
than December 31, 2016, while ensuring continued support and
compatibility with the interoperability platform and full
standards-based interoperability.

(c) Design Principles.--The interoperable electronic health records
with integrated display of data, or a single electronic health record,
established under subsection (b) shall adhere to the following
principles:
(1) To the extent practicable, efforts to establish such
records shall be based on objectives, activities, and milestones
established by the Joint Executive Committee Joint Strategic
Plan Fiscal Years 2013-2015, as well as future addendums or
revisions.
(2) Transition the current data exchanges between the
Departments and private sector health care providers where
practical to modern, open-architecture frameworks that use
computable data mapped to national standards to make data
available for determining medical trends and for enhanced
clinician decision support.
(3) Principles with respect to open architecture standards,
including--
(A) adoption of national data standards;
(B) if such national standards do not exist as of
the date on which the record is being established,
adoption of the articulation of data of the Health Data
Dictionary until such national standards are
established;
(C) use of enterprise investment strategies that
maximize the use of commercial best practices to ensure
robust competition and best value;
(D) aggressive life-cycle sustainment planning that
uses proven technology insertion strategies and product
upgrade techniques;
(E) enforcement of system design transparency,
continuous design disclosure and improvement, and peer
reviews that align with the requirements of the Federal
Acquisition Regulation; and
(F) strategies for data management rights to ensure
a level competitive playing field and access to
alternative solutions and sources across the life-cycle
of the programs.
(4) By the point of deployment, such record must be at a
generation 3 level or better for a health information technology
system.
(5) To the extent the Secretaries consider feasible and
advisable, principles with respect to--

[[Page 796]]

(A) the creation of a health data authoritative
source by the Department of Defense and the Department
of Veterans Affairs that can be accessed by multiple
providers and standardizes the input of new medical
information;
(B) the ability of patients of both the Department
of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs to
download, or otherwise receive electronically, the
medical records of the patient; and
(C) the feasibility of establishing a secure,
remote, network-accessible computer storage system to
provide members of the Armed Forces and veterans the
ability to upload the health care records of the member
or veteran if the member or veteran elects to do so and
allow medical providers of the Department of Defense and
the Department of Veterans Affairs to access such
records in the course of providing care to the member or
veteran.

Subtitle F--Sense of Congress Provisions

SEC. 1751. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON COMMANDING OFFICER RESPONSIBILITY
FOR COMMAND CLIMATE FREE OF RETALIATION.

It is the sense of Congress that--
(1) commanding officers in the Armed Forces are responsible
for establishing a command climate in which sexual assault
allegations are properly managed and fairly evaluated

[[Page 984]]

and in which a victim can report criminal activity, including
sexual assault, without fear of retaliation, including ostracism
and group pressure from other members of the command;
(2) the failure of commanding officers to maintain such a
command climate is an appropriate basis for relief from their
command positions; and
(3) senior officers should evaluate subordinate commanding
officers on their performance in establishing a command climate
as described in paragraph (1) during the regular periodic
counseling and performance appraisal process prescribed by the
Armed Force concerned for inclusion in the systems of records
maintained and used for assignment and promotion selection
boards.

CERTAIN SEXUAL MISCONDUCT OFFENSES UNDER
THE UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE
THROUGH COURTS-MARTIAL.

(1) any charge regarding an offense specified in subsection
(b) should be disposed of by court-martial, rather than by non-
judicial punishment or administrative action; and
(2) in the case of any charge regarding an offense specified
in subsection (b) that is disposed of by non-judicial punishment
or administrative action, rather than by court-martial, the
disposition authority should include in the case file a
justification for the disposition of the charge by non-judicial
punishment or administrative action, rather than by court-
martial.

(b) Covered Offenses.--An offense specified in this subsection is
any of the following offenses under chapter 47 of title 10, United
States Code (the Uniform Code of Military Justice):
(1) Rape or sexual assault under subsection (a) or (b) of
section 920 of such title (article 120 of the Uniform Code of
Military Justice).

125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice).
(3) An attempt to commit an offense specified in paragraph
(1) or (2), as punishable under section 880 of such title
(article 80 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice).
SEC. 1753. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE DISCHARGE IN LIEU OF COURT-
MARTIAL OF MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES
WHO COMMIT SEX-RELATED OFFENSES.

It is the sense of Congress that--
(1) the Armed Forces should be exceedingly sparing in
discharging in lieu of court-martial members of the Armed Forces
who have committed rape, sexual assault, forcible sodomy, or
attempts to commit such offenses, and should do so only when the
facts of the case clearly warrant such discharge;
(2) whenever possible, the victims of offenses referred to
in paragraph (1) shall be consulted prior to the determination
regarding whether to discharge the members who committed such
offenses;
(3) convening authorities should consider the views of
victims of offenses referred to in paragraph (1) when
determining whether to discharge the members who committed such
offenses in lieu of trying such members by court-martial; and

[[Page 985]]

(4) the discharge of any member who is discharged as
described in paragraph (1) should be characterized as Other Than
Honorable.
