The VA's program, instituted in 2003, recorded 1.3 million consultations in the past year, according to Adam Darkins, MD, the VA's chief consultant for telehealth services.

That includes video consults, "store-and-forward" telehealth (in which digital images, video, audio, so-called "observations of daily living" and clinical data are captured and stored on a client computer or mobile device, then forwarded at a convenient time to appropriate caregivers) and home monitoring of an estimated 75,000 veterans suffering from one or more chronic conditions.
Darkins, speaking at the Center for Connected Health's Connected Health Symposium last week in Boston, said the VA is poised to boost its video consult program into the home and add more mHealth programs, e-consults and teleradiology programs to reach some 825,000 veterans by the end of 2013.
He said the VA especially wants to boost its chronic disease management program, moving some 13,000 veterans now monitored by interactive voice response to a video conferencing platform.
"This is about a very different kind of healthcare," he said.

Darkins said the VA's telehealth program has seen 30 percent reductions in bed days of care and 80 percent patient satisfaction rates and saved an estimated $1,900 per person annually - and consistently - since 2005, moving it well beyond the "pilot" stage.
