Engaging Veterans in their Care for over 12 Years
VA Care Coordination Home Telehealth Program and Bosch Healthcare Telehealth Solutions
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is a widely recognized leader in quality improvement and information technology.1 A major success within VA is the Care Coordination/Home Telehealth (CCHT) program, which provides over 60,000 veterans with telehealth technologies. For over 12 years Bosch Healthcare has been the leading telehealth partner of VA in providing telehealth solutions services for veterans across the nation.VA uses both Bosch Healthcare telehealth solutions - the Health Buddy System and the T400 Telehealth System plus the Desktop Application for care coordinators to monitor responses, vital signs and data trends.
Care coordinators involved in CCHT use Bosch telehealth solutions to improve healthcare delivery and help veterans with chronic medical and mental health conditions to live independently in their own homes and local communities.2
