VA Nominee Sloan Gibson Unveils Backlog, EHR Goals at Senate Hearing

Veterans Affairs Department logoSloan Gibson laid out what his priorities would be as deputy director of the Veterans Affairs Department at his nomination hearing before a Senate panel Tuesday, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

Jack Moore writes Gibson told the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee that he aims to eliminate the agency’s disability claims backlog and talk with the Defense Department to find a common ground toward a joint electronic health record system.

Gibson is the CEO and president of United Service Organizations and has previously served as a banking executive and a U.S. Army infrantry officer.

“My business experience in both for-profit and not-for-profit sectors provides a strong background for this role,” Gibson told the Senate panel, according to the report.

“If confirmed, I look forward to going out and talking with veterans who have recent claims experience … talking with front-line staff who are actually doing the work of processing claims day in and day out,” he added.
