Improving Veterans Health Care through Digital Services

Improving Veterans Health Care through Digital Services

Veterans Affairs Chief Technology Officer Charles Worthington, VHA Chief Officer for the Office of Connected Care Dr. Neil Evans and Sonia Arista, director of national health care practice at Fortinet spoke at the CXO Tech Forum: Health IT Modernization on April 4. 

The VA has made leaps toward improvements regarding how veterans access their health care benefits through digital services, most notably since the VA’s relaunch of last November.

Leading VA technology officials say that providing faster, more efficient health care services to veterans continues to be at the forefront of the agency’s modernization efforts, too — but the need to address cybersecurity concerns, while also maintaining patient data security and integrity using such digital services, is equally as important.

The panel discussed these topics and more.
