Center for Access & Delivery Research and Evaluation-CADRE
Through collaborations with other VA program offices, Federal partners, state partners, and rural communities, the VHA Office of Rural Health works to optimize the use of available and emerging technologies, establish new access points to care, and employ strategies to increase health care options for all rural Veterans. We are committed to honoring service and empowering health.
The VA Midwest Health Care Network, also known as Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) 23, is one of 21 Veteran Integrated Service Networks within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Health Administration.
VISN 23 PACT Demonstration Laboratory
The VISN 23 PACT Demonstration Laboratory is one of five centers nationally funded by the VHA Office of Patient Care Services to evaluate PACT implementation throughout the VA and to develop and test innovative tools for health care delivery and care coordination.
The three primary goals of the VISN 23 Demo Lab include:
- Assess the impact of PACT implementation on quality of care, access, utilization, patient perceptions, and provider satisfaction;
- Identify barriers to PACT implementation and support VISN 23 implementation efforts; and
- Pilot test interventions to improve PACT implementation, improve chronic disease management within PACT teamlets, and, facilitate information exchange between VA and non-VA providers of dual use veterans.
The Office of Connected Care brings VA digital technology to Veterans and health care professionals, extending access to care beyond the traditional office visit. Through virtual technology, VA is able to deliver care to patients where and when they need it.
Women Veterans Health Care addresses the health care needs of women Veterans and works to ensure that timely, equitable, high-quality, comprehensive health care services are provided in a sensitive and safe environment at VA health facilities nationwide. We strive to be a national leader in the provision of health care for women, thereby raising the standard of care for all women.
