Burgess Statement on VA Electronic Health Records System Updates
Washington, DC - Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement following the Department of Veteran Affair’s announcement that it will adopt the same electronic health records system as the Pentagon.  “I fully support Secretary Shulkin’s decision to enhance patient care in the Department of Veteran Affairs with this much-needed update. We cannot improve health care outcomes for our veterans unless doctors have access to the entirety of a patient’s medical history. Our veterans deserve the best care we can offer, and this is an important step in ensuring that they have an efficient and positive experience with the VA.  I will continue to advocate for the interoperability of our electronic health records, so that all Americans can easily access their medical records."  # # #

Burgess Statement on the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017
Washington, DC - Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement after the House passed the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017.  “This bill is a long-needed step toward ensuring Secretary Shulkin has the ability to hold his employees accountable to providing quality care in a timely and efficient manner. Our veterans deserve the best care that we can offer to them, and should never suffer because of employees’ negligence or poor performance. Quite simply, the VA should not have any employee who cannot do his or her job on its payroll. This reform will make certain that those who care for our veterans can be held accountable for the quality of care they provide. Moving forward, I will continue to support common sense solutions to reform the VA and enhance veterans’ care."  # # #
