The medical care requirements of our veterans have evolved due to the influx of military operations experienced by the United States throughout the past few decades. While once daunting, meeting these requirements are now feasible as a result of the many advancements across the Veterans Health Administration. However, facilitating this exceptional level of care is not without challenges.

VA Healthcare 2015 will bring together strategic leaders and experts within the Veterans Affairs to share the best practices that have helped successfully implement new technology upgrades, clinical care advancements, and more precise administrative efficiencies.

We Will Examine Topics Including:

  • Future of Mental Healthcare within the VA
  • Health Informatics in the Future of VA Care
  • Technology upgrades that will impact the Patient Experience such as Telehealth, Vista Evolution and Health Informatics for Mental Health Care
  • Innovations in Women’s Specific Care
  • Treating the Growing Threat of Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Administrative Innovations through Enhancing Veterans Benefits Management System and Veterans Claims Intake Program
  • New VA Leadership Structure and how it will Transform the Future of the VHA
  • Implementing Lean Six Sigma to Improve VA Efficiency and Productivity
