I saw this above link on Twitter, and I was reminded of the VA Hospital Waitlist story. I’ll admit that I haven’t dug into the story deeply myself. I mostly understand that numbers were fudged because they bypassed the official waitlist system with one of their own. The article above points to this being a possibly much larger problem.
I’d like to turn this over to readers and hear your thoughts about what’s being reported, but more importantly, what can we learn from this story?
I look forward to reading your thoughts and discussing this story in the comments.
