In a foreword to the report, Dr. Adam Darkins, the chief consultant for telehealth services at the VHA's Office of Patient Care Services, said large, integrated delivery systems such as the VHA and NHS "are uniquely placed to develop and refine new models of care that use innovative new technologies to provide care to virtually to patients."

"Virtual care is not a panacea for all the challenges facing healthcare," Darkins said, but these technologies can "offer the timeliness and convenience of access to care; benefits we have come to expect in other areas of our lives with on-line banking and shopping."
Darkins, a neurosurgeon, spearheaded a VHA push in 2003 into care coordination via telehealth.
