Better use of software programs to reduce the cost of printing

The VA is supposed to go paperless in the future. So, why do we print the letters from MAP-D, PCGL, and RBA 2000, for the veteran’s file? These letters are all saved and available for viewing at any time. PCGL and RBA 2000 letters are in Virtual VA. Uploading MAP-D letters into Virtual VA would result in having all letters stored in one centralized location. Additionally, since we have access to the veteran’s medical... more »

Making a Difference by Saving Energy and Money

I believe a great way the government could save energy and money would be to put in motion sensored lights. This would work especially well in restrooms, hallways and administrative offices. We would no longer have to rely on employees to turn the lights off. As long is someone is in the office working, in the restroom or walking down a hallway the lights are on. When you exit the area the lights go off. A great... more »

Creating a VA Regional office training dept

I would suggest the Dept of VA, stop conducting centralized challenge training across the U.S. I would instead suggest each RO having a training dept to give out all new, and updated training. This department would be established with certified VSRs and RVSRS. I would suggest these individuals certified and have certain educational backgrounds. This way the cost associated with travel costs, per diem, hotel costs,... more »

Software for More efficient C&P claims processing

1. C&P claims usually require more than one provider appointment. Most of these could be scheduled the day the 2507 is received. All the 2507's that come in one day would be scheduled in the order in which they could be completed the fastest. For example, if a VA is short-handed in psychology, then a patient who needs a psychology exam would not need all of his appointments scheduled ASAP, but rather closer to his... more »
