The Importance of Transforming to a Whole Health System Model in the VA

The Importance of Transforming to a Whole Health System Model in the VA

Monday, October 21, 2019 - 2:15pm to 3:30pm
TechKnow Showcase

Hub 3: Health Innovation
Whole Health: The healthcare crisis in the United States has led to a call for transformation to a proactive model of care; VA is a national leader in Whole Health care delivery and the Whole Health System model is a roadmap to this paradigm shift. The Whole Health System concept moves VA from focusing on episodic care to a more continuous engagement with the Veteran throughout his/her life. Additionally, the Whole Health System model is the current vision for complementary and integrative health (CIH) integration in VA

Use Case: How might a Health System engage the individual to take charge of their life and health and map it to their Mission, Aspiration, and Purpose (MAP)?
