- AP FACT CHECK: Trump overstates progress at Veterans Affairs
By HOPE YEN, Associated Press - Thursday Jul 27, 2017
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump paints a rosy picture of an improved Department of Veterans Affairs under his watch where accessing electronic medical records is "so easy and so good" and health care is freely available without any delays.At a campaign-style event in Ohio this week, Trump's claims of progress were so overstated that even his own VA secretary, David Shulkin — who stood right next to him — would have to disagree."Since my first day in office, we've taken one action after another to make sure that our veterans get the care they so richly deserve," Trump said.[...] the multibillion-dollar IT initiative Trump cites has yet to be even budgeted, and an alternative program of private-sector care he describes is running out of money and needs reauthorization by Congress.While Shulkin announced plans last month to overhaul electronic records by replacing VA's aging information technology system, the multiyear effort has barely even begun.Put in place after a 2014 wait-time scandal at the Phoenix VA, the program allows veterans to see outside doctors if they must wait more than 30 days for an appointment or drive more than 40 miles to a VA facility.Congress is now scrambling to provide billions in emergency money to fill the gap, or risk disruptions in veterans' care.According to Shulkin's "State of the VA" report, the VA is "still in critical condition," with veterans waiting more than 60 days for new appointments at about 30 VA facilities nationwide.On quality of care, the VA's inspector general issued urgent action reports in April and May, warning that patients at the Washington, D.C., VA medical center were being put at unnecessary risk of harm due to bad inventory practices, like potentially dirty syringes and medical supply shortages.By late 2016, the department's blog announced that the goal of providing same-day primary and mental-health care when medically necessary would be achieved at every VA medical center by year's end.A Dec. 23, 2016, article in the Harvard Business Review cites new same-day services at all VA hospitals as evidence of notable progress under former VA Secretary Bob McDonald "and his team."
