This is the February 7, 2017 hearing titled "Assessing the VA [U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs] IT [Information Technology] Landscape" before the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs. From the opening statement of David P. Roe: "We will begin the 115th Congress by examining IT because it is so important to everything VA does and everything we all hope to accomplish as part of the department's transformation. From delivering timely care to veterans, to ensuring that medical records follow the patient, to making benefit decisions accurately, modern IT systems are essential. This year and next are pivotal because the department has major decisions to make about how to modernize its systems. VA is also beginning several projects they have attempted with poor results in the past and now is the last chance to get them right."
