Congressman Rosendale Calls Out VA Secretary On Broken Promise

Washington, D.C. – Today, during a House Veterans Affairs Committee hearing, Congressman Matt Rosendale called out U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough for breaking his promise to fix the problems within the Cerner electronic health records system before deploying it to additional VA sites and risking even more veterans' lives around the country.

"You pledged to us that this system would not be introduced in other facilities until it is fully functional--it is not," said Congressman Rosendale. "We have a list of life-threatening events that continue to take place to this very day. There is documentation for the wrong patients, doctors cannot rely upon the information they are reviewing to accurately treat patients."
