Representative Rosendale Blasts VA Officials Over Failed Cerner EHR System

Washington, D.C. – Earlier this week, Congressman Matt Rosendale expressed his concerns over Cerner's electronic health record system, which has experienced dozens of outages since its initial "go live" in 2020.

"In February, we urged VA and Cerner to concentrate on fixing the technical problems in the key areas of pharmacy, referrals, and the patient portal before implementing the EHR at Walla Walla, Columbus, or anywhere else," said Congressman Rosendale. "However, there has been no concrete action to solve these issues. There should be no more "go lives" or additional funding until every single issue is fixed."
