Cerner Stays Losing VA Health System

For those who haven't seen it already, here's a scathing report on tech trouble confronted by one of Kansas City's top ranking companies. Take a look:

'We took a broken system and just broke it completely'

President Donald Trump last year hailed a multibillion-dollar initiative to create a seamless digital health system for active duty military and the VA that he said would deliver "faster, better, and far better quality care." But the military's $4.3 billion Cerner medical record system has utterly failed to achieve those goals at the first hospitals that went online.

George W. Bush personally told Obama the VA was a disaster and it's still not fixed. Our vets deserve better.

This whole dog and pony show over these records was a fucking money wasting farce from day one. Someone needs to investigate how this fucking plan ever happened to begin with. Sixty percent of Veterans will never use the VA. 85 percent of the military medical records are for deceased veterans. Less than 1 percent of existing military medical records are even applicable to histories usable by VA medical providers and we just wasted 4.3 billion of YOUR dollars for smoothing out access to records that, for the most part, will never need to be accessed. Fucking insane!!!

In the mean time the VA continued to kill veterans, stall and deny on medical procedures, bankrupt vets by stalling on bill payment occasion collectors to go after the veterans and after building hundreds o clinics and hiring thousands of bureaucrats the VA is worse today than it was ten years ago.

When are tax payers going to put a stop this bullshit?
