VA Program Aims to Enhance Care for Veterans with Amputation

Posted November 19, 2013

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has initiated the Prosthetics Patch 101 Program with the goal of improving the VA’s oversight and management of prosthetic purchasing and inventory management.

Creative Computing Solutions Inc. (CCSi), Rockville, Maryland, a provider of program and project management services, health services, cybersecurity services, and enterprise systems engineering to the federal government, has been awarded a contract to provide management technical services for the Prosthetics Patch 101 Program. The contract has a six-month performance period.

According to CCSi, by strengthening internal controls, the VA will reduce costs and minimize risks of prosthetic supply shortages, which in turn will improve the quality of care for veterans. The program will also modify the existing Prosthetics Inventory Package (PIP) and Prosthetics VistA Suite (PVS) to support an interface between the two applications.

Under the terms of the contract, CCSi will guide the project team through the development and deployment lifecycle. Specifically, the company will provide project management, document and change management, meeting and communications support, program management accountability system (PMAS) support, and risk management support, as well as create and maintain the integrated master schedule (IMS).
