VA Healthcare 2016 Conference
- Developing Solutions for the Next Generation of Veteran Care
- 16 May, 2016 - 18 May, 2016, Arlington, VA, United States
The U.S. population holds a greater concentration of military veterans than at any time since WWII. This vastly higher presence of veterans has caused the VA Health Care system to be overrun with new patients. Over the past few years, the VA has been working tirelessly to completely restructure the entire organization top to bottom to increase efficiency and capacity.
Come hear from senior veteran healthcare officials and experts as we explore the road ahead for strengthening the VA Health Care system, and learn of the latest developments and how you can implement them locally.
