Advocacy Grand Rounds: Best Care Anywhere – Lessons Learned in the VA Health System and Opportunities for Growth | 1 p.m. ET
November 11, 2021 @ 1:00 pm–2:00 pm EST

In 2014, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs was in crisis. Long waits, lack of funding, heavy caseloads, and the whole process lacked transparency. While not perfect, the turnaround of the Department of Veterans Affairs has been transformative! Today’s VA demonstrates a completely integrated health care system driven by an information system motivated by patient outcomes rather than reimbursements, incentives to save money by avoiding unnecessary procedures, and the power of mass purchasing. Discover the lessons we can learn from the VA Health System and uncover what the VA has left to learn. You will also walk away with how to advocate and support your veteran and active duty patients from conflicts past and present.
Our next Advocacy Grand Rounds session will focus on these takeaways:
- Recognize and understand the key challenges to the VA healthcare system today
- Learn how the VA has changed their approach in order to better address the healthcare needs of veterans
- Understand the ways the VA system is meeting the rising mental health care needs of veterans
- Understand how the VA system has improved to meet the needs of a more diverse veteran population including women and LGBTQ veterans
