We testified about our work on the Department of Veterans Affairs’ efforts to modernize its health information and financial IT systems, address cybersecurity, and more.
For example, although potential hurdles remain, VA made progress modernizing electronic health records. Three earlier efforts to modernize health information systems failed.
VA needs to do more to strengthen cybersecurity, such as determining and addressing the areas that pose the greatest risks. Although VA has implemented many of our recommendations, risks to sensitive information remain.
