It’s Time to Pull The Plug

I know I don’t have to tell you that the Oracle Cerner electronic health record (EHR) System being used at Mann-Grandstaff and Walla Walla’s VA Medical Centers has been a complete disaster. 

From the very beginning, I’ve joined Eastern Washington veterans in sounding the alarm about the issues with this broken system – from the prescription errors to lost referrals. I raised the volume on that alarm even louder today when I testified before the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee.

I made it abundantly clear that veterans in Eastern Washington have had enough. They are tired of being guinea pigs in this failed experiment. It’s time to pull the plug on this incredibly flawed system and go back to one that works. 

In the meantime, I will do everything I can to make things work as best we can for our veterans who have no other choice.
