Dept. of Veterans Affairs plans to release data delayed by secruity concerns
The Dept. of Veterans Affairs plans to release reports on first-time patients in the VA health system after not releasing data since March citing concerns for the "security arrangements for the delivery of the data," according to their website. Previously, the VA had released four reports a year. The most recent data available is for October to December of 2012.
According to their report, "A statement buried on an unpublicized VA web page reads, 'VA and the Department of Defense are currently enhancing their existing security arrangements for the delivery of the data VA uses for these reports. At this time, it is unknown when the next reports will be released.'"
As of Oct. 31, the VA has updated their site to state that data for 2013 will be released in November.
The VA's site does not give more specifics for the delay.
