Virtual Listening Session on the Future of VA Health Care
When: June 14, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. (EDT)
Who: Veterans, Veterans Service Organization representatives, and
other community stakeholders – if you have not already attended a local listening session
Where: The listening session will be conducted virtually – you can join via phone or computer.
Please register at https://veteransaffairs.webex.com/.../mywebex/default.do... or dial 404-397-1596 (Access Code: 199 405 3416) to join.
We are looking forward to hearing from Veterans on the following topics:
• How Veterans want care to be delivered in the future
• Perception of the quality of health care at VA and VA’s community network
• Experience with the ability to get care at VA and within VA’s community network
• Satisfaction with the condition and location of VA’s facilities
• VA’s role in research, education, and emergency preparedness
VA is hosting public virtual listening sessions to hear from Veterans
on how to design a health care system of the future and grow
services for Veterans in a way that reinforces VA’s role as a leader in
the U.S. health care system. This listening session represents an
exciting opportunity for Veterans to help VA reimagine how VA
delivers care in an equitable, high quality, Veteran-centered manner
and develop a plan for investing in VA’s aging infrastructure.
We encourage Veterans, Veterans Service Organizations, Community Veterans Engagement Boards, and other interested stakeholders to attend. The feedback will be used to develop the
recommendations VA submits to the Asset and Infrastructure Review (AIR) Commission in January 2022.
If you are not able to attend, but would still like to provide feedback, please submit your feedback to VHAMAQs@va.gov.
Please do not include personal health information and be aware that VA will not be providing responses to individual emails.
