Hello and welcome to the website of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Chief Strategy Office.  It is my pleasure to share with you our role in creating conditions for success as VA designs a high performing integrated health care network to improve the overall health, experience and well-being of Veterans.

VHA Chief Strategy Office serves as a key strategic advisor to the Executive in Charge, Deputy Under Secretary, Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Program Offices, Veteran Integrated Service Networks (VISNs), and VA Medical Centers (VAMCs). We also develop policy, programs and fund initiatives within VA that advance the health of Veterans in rural America. The mission of the Office is: to integrate strategy, information and insight to enable VHA to provide industry-leading health care to Veterans.

The VHA Chief Strategy Office is comprised of a central office and three field-based units. We coordinate various aspects of VHA's national policy development, analysis and planning initiatives. The Office represents VHA's priorities and policies through intra-organizational activities that improve the health of Veterans, plan for Veterans’ services, promote policy related to the care of Veterans, advance rural health issues, and project Veteran enrollment and utilization of care for health systems planning and budget development. Employees in this Office work collaboratively to further the VHA vision and achieve VA goals while striving to be innovative, always acting with integrity, and being responsive to our stakeholders’ needs.
