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.

Transforming Veterans' Care in Rural PracticesFeature

White House Rural Council inspires Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) and Office of Rural Health (ORH) partnership to transform rural Veterans’ health care using Health Information Technology.

Joint initiatives will improve care coordination and quality of care for Veterans who live in rural areas by empowering them to initiate electronic transfer of health information between their VA and non-VA community health care providers.
