The Office of Connected Care focuses on improving health care through technology by engaging Veterans and care teams outside of traditional health care visits. By bringing together VA digital health technologies under one umbrella, the Office of Connected Care is enhancing health care coordination across VA and supporting Veterans’ participation in their own care.
Office of Connected Care programs include:
VA Telehealth Services improves convenience to Veterans by providing access to care from their homes or local communities when they need it. Telehealth technologies provide clinical care in circumstances where distance separates those receiving services and those providing services.
