News Releases from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
  1. I am pleased to announce we have signed a contract with Cerner today that will modernize the VA's health care IT system and help provide seamless care to Veterans as they transition from military service to Veteran status, and when they choose to use community care. This is one of the largest IT contracts in the federal government, with a ceiling of $10 billion over 10 years. And with a contract of that size, you can understand why former Secretary Shulkin and I took some extra time to do our due diligence and make sure the contract does what the President wanted.
  2. I congratulate Chairman Roe and Members from both parties who forged an overwhelming vote of support for the MISSION Act. This long-awaited legislation streamlines VA's community care programs, strengthens health care options for our nation's Veterans, whether in the VA or in the community, and, most importantly, centers those decisions on what is best for our Veterans.
  3. WASHINGTON - Today the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs released the names of 18 facilities designated VA Whole Health Flagship sites, which are spread around the country within the VA health-care system and are focused on empowering and equipping Veterans to take charge of their health and well-being.
  4. Today VA announced that Paul R. Lawrence will assume office Tuesday, May 15 as the department's new Under Secretary for Benefits. Lawrence is a former Army captain and airborne school graduate, and has served in a number of key positions in the accounting industry, focusing primarily in the area of federal government practices.
  5. WASHINGTON - Effective May 13, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will update portions of the VA Schedule for Rating Disabilities (VASRD, or rating schedule) that evaluates the organs of special sense eye conditions, as well as gynecological conditions and disorders of the breast.
