VA Pharmacy IT projects getting slammed?

07/20/2009

As part of a wider effort the VA is halting 45 IT projects.  Ouch.   The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced last week plans to temporarily halt 45 IT projects that are either behind schedule or over budget to assess whether the VA should continue pursuing them.

Below are the pharmacy projects on the chopping block.  It would be really great if someone from the VA could give us a perspective.  Please post a comment on the ASHP list serv or at http://rxinformatics.com (anonymously if needed).  That would be really great.

Below is a pharmacy related list of projects temporarily halted (site reference):

·       Pharmacy Re-Engineering Pre .5

·       Pharmacy Re-Engineering Pre1.0

·       Barcode Expansion

·       BCMA Inpatient Medication Request for SFG IRA

·       Problem List Standardization
