VA releases Launchpad app to streamline health care access for Veterans and caregivers

App combines telehealth tools for faster service

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently launched a new mobile application designed to save Veterans and their caregivers time online.

VA Launchpad for Veterans simplifies and organizes several existing tools and resources into one convenient location to help manage health care needs.

“VA has developed dozens of apps for Veterans to take charge of their health care,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “VA Launchpad makes it easier to have these important tools available at your fingertips.”

VA Launchpad arranges all of VA’s apps into five categories for Veterans: health management, health care team communication, vital health information sharing, mental health improvement and quality of life improvement. The new app enables Veterans to access all the features with a single secure login.

The app also includes many mental health care and personal improvement tools for individuals who are not enrolled in VA health care services. These tools are free and do not require secure logins to use.

VA Launchpad for Veterans is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play. To access VA’s secure apps within VA Launchpad, users must be a VA patient and have one of the following accounts: Premium My HealtheVet, DS Logon Level 2 (Premium) or ID.me.
