Innovation Experience

Innovation is at the forefront of all VA care. As the largest integrated health care system in the world, VA not only cares for our nation’s Veterans but is in a unique position to advance, change, and disrupt the way America delivers health care. VHA Innovation Ecosystem leads this effort and uses the VHA Innovation Experience (iEx) to celebrate this incredible work.

Each year, over the course of multiple days, VHA employees, industry leaders, academic partners, the public, and Veterans come together to share the innovative, life-changing work being done daily throughout VHA. Frontline employees, who work directly with Veterans daily, present their incredible practices and solutions in a variety of ways, including demonstrations, talks, and posters.

The event includes of four parts: VHA Innovation Demo Day, VHA iEx Talks, VHA Shark Tank Competition, and a networking and poster session. By bringing these fantastic programs together into one engaging and exciting event, VHA Innovation Ecosystem highlights how VA’s care for Veterans is constantly evolving and improving.

The third annual VHA Innovation Experience occured on Oct. 28-29, 2020, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. It will combine popular elements from last year with a full slate of new and cutting-edge experiences. Stay tuned for more information.
