Veterans Administration Demonstrates New Telehealth Services

The Department of Veterans Affairs recently offered a demonstration of its new telehealth services, reports KOTA News. Telehealth services are being implemented in the VA as part of an effort to provide greater access to veterans living in rural areas, where access to health services is sparse.

The VA also plans to assist veterans who may not have access to tablets, laptops or phones in order to access telehealth services.
