VA nabs four Telly Awards for virtual-care educational videos

As a result of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) efforts to educate and help Veterans better understand health care services available to them, VA’s Office of Connected Care (OCC) recently won four Telly Awards for educational videos highlighting the department’s virtual care experience.

The awards, which were presented May 21, honor excellence in video and television made for all screens.

“These videos help Veterans better understand telehealth treatment and how they can form meaningful connections through VA virtual care services,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “This type of storytelling has been an essential part of bringing high-quality health care to Veterans, no matter where they choose to live, work and thrive.”

The annual competition is judged by leading video and television experts. OCC’s awards were for the three following videos: 

             Gold winner, online commercials – Motion Graphics Design

             Bronze winner, online commercials – Institutional/Corporate Image

             Bronze winner, Online Commercials – Public Interest/Awareness

             Bronze winner, online commercials – Hospitals

VA is the nation’s largest provider of telehealth services, delivering care through more than 1 million video telehealth visits in 2018. Additionally, Connected Care programs, such as  My HealtheVet and VA Mobile, enable Veterans to take ownership of their health.
