This new service request (NSR) is supported by the Office of Patient Care Services. This request addresses a few changes and needs within the business environment for the Prosthetics and Sensory Aid Service (PSAS) package. A previous Prosthetics development effort, Prosthetics Release RMPR*3*101 (Patch 101), associated with the Strategic Asset Management (SAM) Program was “paused” in 2011 and is now being reactivated. Patch 101 includes requirements for:
Enhancements to the Prosthetics VistA Suite (PVS);
Modifications to existing Prosthetics software to support the functional replacement of the current Prosthetics Inventory Package (PIP); and
Interface support for issuance of stock items from the Prosthetics VistA Suite (PVS).
The Office of Inspector General, Office of Audits and Evaluations issued an audit report in March 2012 titled, Audit of Prosthetics Supply Inventory Management. The report directs Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) and VAMC directors to eliminate excess prosthetic inventories, avoid prosthetic shortages, develop a plan to implement a modern inventory system, and strengthen management of prosthetic supply inventories. Patch 101 was developed to address a portion of the recommendations from this report. The changes in Patch 101 provide the prosthetics end user with the needed information for an optimal workflow, ensure 508 compliance, and allow PVS system to exchange the necessary information to an inventory system.
