On July 30, 2013, the Veterans Health Administration held the Connected Health Showcase at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Members of the press were invited to experience VA’s Connected Health Technologies first hand. These innovations virtually connect patients with services, allowing the delivery of Veteran-centric health care, when and where our Veterans need it. Senator Sanders and Dr. Petzel connect with Veteran, Robert Shuey, who lives in Roseburg, Oregon. Shuey receives care using VA’s Virtual Prosthetics Clinic, connecting to the Portland VA medical center, avoiding a very long trip to see his specialists. VA photo by Robert Turtil.
