In this problem, you will estimate the relative value of VistA for the Veterans Administration.We asked the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide us the budget of the Office of Information in the last decade (this office was recently organized and the FOIA officer had to estimate what the budget of the office would have been prior to the re-organization).
We also asked for the number of patient records in VistA database. They provided us with the following information:
