Hearing on Ways to Improve VA Productivity and Efficiency

National VFW - 7/17/2017

On Thursday, the House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Health held a hearing about maximizing access and resources available at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for better productivity and efficiency within the agency. The hearing consisted of panelists invited from VA, the Government Accountability Office, as well as private-sector accounting and hospital corporations. Chairman Wenstrup invited these panelists to discuss how VA can be more responsible with spending of taxpayer dollars, while also providing the highest quality of care possible for veterans. Since 9/11, VA has seen its budget continue to increase, and the chairman invited the panelists to discuss if there is reason to believe the budget increases resulted in better care or not.
