The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs could start to request bids from industry for a contract to update the agency’s patient scheduling platform within this week, Fedscoop reported Friday.

Dan Verton writes VA seeks a commercial scheduling tool that can be integrated with the Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture.

Stephen Warren, VA chief information officer, told reporters the agency will pick vendors to demonstrate their appointment scheduling products and the offerings will be subject to final evaluation by internal medical schedulers.

The department estimates it will take 30 days to review industry proposals for the contract, according to Fedscoop.

Verton reports the House Committee on Veterans Affairs is scheduled to hear testimony from Warren regarding cybersecurity issues at the agency on Tuesday.
