Telehealth

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.


VA Video Connect

Veterans receiving health care at VA medical centers throughout VISN 4 have an opportunity to obtain some care with the ease of a video chat. VA Video Connect (VVC) is a web application that Veterans can use to connect with their health care team from anywhere with an internet connection and compatible device.
