VA Healthcare - VISN 4 is using modern technology to expand access and provide patient-centered care in non-traditional locations, such as a Veteran's home, an institution of higher learning, or a community clinic.

VISN 4 offers three types of Telehealth technologies:

  • Store and Forward Telehealth is the acquisition and storage of clinical information such as data, images, sound, and video.
  • Home Telehealth makes it possible for clinicians to monitor patients in their homes using telephone lines and mobile phones.
  • Clinical Video Telehealth connects Veterans with distant providers in real time using video teleconferencing.

Telehealth enables more accessible and convenient health care for Veterans. It reduces the time Veterans need to spend in the hospital, and increases access to services without requiring long drives for patients.

To learn more about VISN 4's Telehealth program, including some exciting new developments, view a short video of our Telehealth program manager.

To find out about Telehealth programs that may fit your lifestyle and health care needs, please talk to your primary care provider.
