Predicting the trajectory of health: the future of VA care

I had the chance to chat with Kathleen L. Frisbee, the Co-Director of Connected Health in the Veterans Health Administration. Dr. Frisbee oversees the rollout of system-wide Veteran digital health strategies, including a suite of mobile health apps designed to support family caregivers providing home health care help to veterans.  Recently, Dr. Frisbee was recognized as one of FierceHealthIT’s “Top-10 influential women in health IT.” What’s the most exciting project your team worked on in 2014? The Family Caregiver Pilot was definitely one of the most exciting projects the VA Mobile Health team worked on in 2014. Between May 2013 and September 2014, nearly 1,000 Caregivers of seriously injured post 9/11 Veterans received VA-loaned iPads loaded with a suite of apps to test and evaluate. The suite is comprised of nine mobile applications (apps) designed to support Caregivers and the Veterans they assist. By using the mobile technology, Veterans and Caregivers received secure access to health care information, the ability to track personal health-related information, and additional functionality in sharing personal health information with their VA care teams.
