Connected Care: VA, Virtual Health and the Patient Experience
3:00pm - 4:00pmWednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is the largest integrated national healthcare system in the United States and has been a leader in Connected Health and Telehealth for many years. As the digital health industry continues to evolve, VA is focused on maturing its consumer health information technology platform. As technology becomes increasingly embedded in the daily lives of both Veterans and healthcare teams, solutions increasingly must anticipate and support the needs of the entire healthcare community. Technology should fade into the background; the consumer and provider experience should sit squarely in the foreground. This session focuses on the next phase of VA’s digital transformation –the integration of mobile, telehealth and electronic health record (EHR) tools to provide a seamless experience of care delivery that gives Veterans and care teams a cohesive system to access, manage and track health holistically over time.
