The Department of Veterans Affairs And Technology

The Department of Veterans Affairs chief consultant of care coordination services, Adam Darkins MD, speaks to Healthcare It News about Electronic Health Records (EHRs), Telemedicine, and other ways of bringing medical services to the patient.

We've been building a technology infrastructure to be able to do videoconferencing. We have a national videoconferencing network for VA now, with more than 4,000 video endpoints, every single one of which can link to each other by direct dial via IP. So we have a really robust infrastructure. But that's taken us since 2007 – five years – to evolve into this large network where we have quality of service standards being introduced to do video.
