|VA Office:||Office of Information and Technology (OIT)
|Report Author:||Office of Audits and Evaluations
|Report Type:||Information Technology Inspection
The VA Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted this inspection to determine whether the Tucson Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy (CMOP) was meeting federal security guidance. The inspection team selected the Tucson CMOP because it is home to the CMOP Local Area Network, which establishes an interface for electronically transferring information between all Veterans Health Administration medical centers and the CMOP host systems located at each of the seven CMOPs, which form an integrated and highly automated outpatient prescription dispensing system.
