VA Creating New Model Of Health Care

In an attempt to stay ahead of the curve, and continue to set the pace in the health care field, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is developing a new model of health care. The office of Patient Centered Care and Cultural Transformation, which is located in Arlington, Va, saw its first day of operations on January 17, 2011. The office will work toward building patient-centered health care plans for veterans using VA health care services while focusing on a personalized approach to health care.

The current health care landscape in this country is rapidly developing, and in this environment, the VA is in a unique position to transform modern health care culture. Because of the incredible flexibility required to constantly develop and improve new health care models, this new office must be a “living, learning organization.” As new models of care are developed, their results and impact will be measured to determine what initiatives will be made available nationwide at all VA medical centers, as well as assist in their implementation.

There will be 4 regional satellite locations of this new office, and they are scattered across the country. The locations were chosen because of  their strong history of providing localized patient-centered care. These locations have been given the responsibility of taking the VA’s new model of health care and working out the kinks so to speak before the programs go nationwide.
