The Veterans Administration plan to use Cerner to merge military health records with Veterans health records is one of the biggests scams ever pulled on the tax payers for a myriad of reasons. First consider that 11 percent of the VA's patients are not even veterans. Second consider that only 40 percent of existing veterans accept any healthcare services from the VA and all but a few of those are clinical out patients and not hospitalized ones. Now consider that the average age of veteran patients is 54 which places a huge number in the category where their military health records are mostly over 30 years old and likely contain near nothing that would help the VA in diagnosing much of anything. Now consider that the VA intends to spend near a billions dollars making this conversion and intends to access medical records with NO consent of the patients whatsoever.

The real pisser is that it took me nearly two years to get my first appointment at the KC VA after providing my application and DD 214s while verifying my service record in order to shop at the Army-Air Force Exchange Service took less than 15 minutes online.

This whole farce is more about beginning the Federally controlled medical records database pushed by Obama. It is being done with NO patient permissions and under the guise that those records already belong to the government. With this move the VA will have access to near every military medical record ever created. When you consider all the deceased veteran records you end up with the VA being able to access records, over 90 percent of which don't even belong to VA patients. Now consider that the VA's control of records privacy and access is so bad that thousands of employees who are not even medical providers can access medical records. This includes the likes of clerical workers and transportation personnel. What all this has to do with improving the quality of Veteran healthcare is a fucking mystery to near anyone with an IQ above 30. This is simply a case of bureaucrats run amok with your money.

Does this sound like anything close to Trump's promise that veterans would be able to seek medical care outside the VA and force the VA to compete to keep patients? Again, you were sold out by slick talking bureaucrats and bogus vets organizations - thank you for your service.
