Veterans Administration Telehealth Services uses health informatics and telehealth technologies to improve healthcare services. Home Telehealth provides a home messaging device at no cost to veterans. Veterans who participate in the program use the device daily to send data such as weight, blood sugar and blood pressure to a registered nurse who reviews the information, documents findings in the patient medical records and assist the primary care provider with care management. Non-emergency healthcare advice and treatment can be obtained without having to drive to the VA medical center. For more information, visit the VA Telehealth Services webpage or contact your nearest VA medical center.
