Description
 
The Veterans Health Admin.s (VHAs) spending on surgical implants -- such as stents and bone and skin grafts -- has increased to about $563 million in FY 2012. Clinicians at Veterans Admin. (VA) medical centers (VAMCs) determine veterans needs and request implant purchases either from a contract or from the open market (i.e., not from an existing contract). VHA requirements include providing justifications for open-market purchases. This report examines (1) factors that influence clinicians decisions to use particular implants when multiple, similar items are available; (2) selected VAMCs compliance with pertinent VHA requirements for documenting open-market purchases; and (3) VAs and VHAs oversight of VAMC compliance with implant purchasing requirements. Tables and figure. This is a print on demand report.
