President Trump today announced that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will soon roll out a new virtual visit service called VA Video Connect along with a new smartphone app for appointment scheduling. VA Video Connect will allow any VA physician to conduct a telehealth visit with any veteran anywhere in the country, either on a mobile device or on a computer.

“This will significantly expand access to care to our veterans, especially for those who need help in the area of mental health, which is a bigger and bigger request, and also in suicide prevention,” Trump said in a press conference at VA headquarters. “It will make a tremendous difference for the veterans in rural locations in particular.”
