“OIG previously reported concerns with VHA’s calculated wait time data in our
Audit of VHA’s Outpatient Scheduling Procedures, Report No. 04-02887-169, July 8, 2005 and
Audit of VHA’s Outpatient Wait Times, Report No. 07-00616-199, September 10, 2007.
During both audits, OIG found that schedulers were entering an incorrect desired date.
Given VHA’s inability to correct this long-standing problem, VHA should reassess their
training, competency, and oversight methods and develop appropriate controls to collect
reliable and accurate appointment data.”
