Delivering the Highest-Quality Care to our Nation’s Heroes
Across the entirety of the United States Government, there is no priority more imperative than that of providing the highest-quality care to our nation’s Veterans. As the largest integrated health care network in the United States, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is tasked with providing care to our nation’s Veterans.
The VA has undergone a number of significant challenges over the past decade. The pandemic has forced the VA to shift the way that it provides patient experience and care, with a need to better integrate digital and mobile technologies like telehealth and virtual care. Supply chain disruptions continue to change the way that the VA provides the tools, equipment, medicine and technology for its providers and patients. The integration of electronic health records system is changing the way that clinicians provide care at VA medical centers across the nation. Acts of Congress have opened up new options for private care to veterans.
Taken together, the VA must continue to tackle these challenges in order to provide the best care for our nation’s veterans. Congress has taken notice. In the latest Omnibus spending bill, Congress agreed to a total of $118.7 billion for the VA in FY2023, a 22% increase in funding.
The IDGA Veterans Affairs Healthcare Summit is now in its 17th iteration, and is an industry-wide staple for those supporting the VA’s mission set. Our partners across the military, government, private and non profit healthcare sector, academia and consultant communities have consistently made this event a marquee gathering for senior stakeholders, technology experts, industry innovators, clinicians, nurses and administrators. With our Summit regularly hosting over 400+ attendees, this engagement opportunity will provide those leaders across the VA Healthcare ecosystem the chance to learn, share, and connect with our nation’s veterans to improve health outcomes, care access, and delivery.
