Washington, D.C.


Maximizing Patient Experience through Technology, Clinical Care, and Administrative Efficiencies

The needs of our veterans are continuously changing as a result of innovations in medical care as well as the influx of engagements which the United States has been involved in throughout the past few decades. The VA has been tasked with an enormous responsibility to provide exceptional and the highest level of care possible to these commendable Veterans.

VA Healthcare Summit 2015 will bring together strategic leaders and experts within the Veterans Affairs to evaluate and assess the benefits and challenges in which they face in the near future with augmenting and implementing new technology, clinical care practices, and administrative efficiencies.

By examining and identifying the areas in which improvement are greatly needed within the VHA, the VA can properly inform and educate the Vendors of the parameters and systems needed to correct these deficiencies. By doing this the VA will ensure they are moving in the right direction in order to resolve the overall problem of dealing with a countless influx of Veterans as well as the issue of sequestration.
