In response to our close and consistent advocacy over these last two weeks, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is making Video Connect more broadly available to Veterans in the VHA system!
We’ve been in close contact these last two weeks with both the Office of the Secretary and raised it with the President last week when we were on a conference call with 11 fellow Veteran Service Organizations.
Right now, the system is only for VA health care providers and not for community care providers, but we will continue to press them to expand it to community care providers. Regardless, this is a BIG step forward in assisting our Veterans and Caregivers.
You can download the app for your smart phone or tablet, or use it directly from your desktop, laptop or tablet. https://mobile.va.gov/app/
