"Rival Challenges Award Of Veteran Affairs Contract To Cerner Corp."

The whole damn world ought to be challenging this scam. Realize that a very small percentage of veterans seeking treatment involve military records that remain even remotely relevant. The Feds at the VA would have you believe that millions of veterans old military medical records will be relevant to their treatment efforts. This is complete horse shit as a huge percentage of the records will have virtually no effect on diagnosis or treatment options for veterans enrolled in VA care. Additionally the numbers of recent veterans using VA health care is only a very small percentage of recently discharged veterans. Although veterans with service connected disabilities, who choose VA care, will see some advantage to this record access program it certainly does not justify the BILLIONS this project is going to end up costing tax payers. Add to the problem that even today an unacceptable number of unauthorized individuals ARE accessing veteran's health records (in violation of Federal law) and you are simply breeding another giant problem for the VA system.

This is another dog & pony show designed to make it look like they are really working on improving veteran health care when in reality they are just burning fucking money like there is no tomorrow. They need to scrap this toxic organization and do a redo and rethinking of veterans health care. The vet organizations need to stop sucking up to the VA (because the VA gives them free perks, sweetheart deals, lobbies them and provides office space to the groups at the VA centers) and needs to start representing the veterans.
