VA Testing Mobile App

The key to the Department of Veterans Affairs' new model of patient care fits in the palm of your hand.

The VA has recently been field testing a vairety of mobile apps designed to extend the reach of services to veterans.

At a DAV demonstration, Assistant National Legislative Director Adrian Atizado called the app program, "a very effective tool for both caregivers and veterans to keep track of important health data and to transmit that information directly to their health care team.”

Robert Weinstein’s devotion began when he became ill after service as a World War II aerial gunner. He turned to DAV for help and never turned away.
