Telehealth Care

Home Telehealth, also known as Care Coordination/Home Telehealth, is a service that allows the Veteran's physician or nurse to monitor the Veteran's medical condition remotely using home monitoring equipment.

Veterans can be referred to a care coordinator for enrollment in Home Telehealth services by any member of their care team. Enrollment is approved by a VA provider for Veterans who meet the clinical need for the service.

A care coordinator gets health information that each Veteran provides through personalized questions answered on special equipment, and then checks in with the Veteran by phone, if needed. If any of the Veteran's health measurements do not seem normal, the care coordinator talks with their physician or nurse and then gets back to the Veteran with next steps.
