App combines telehealth tools for faster service

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently launched a new mobile application designed to save Veterans and their caregivers time online, announced the agency. VA Launchpad for Veterans simplifies and organizes several existing tools and resources into one convenient location to help manage healthcare needs.

VA says Launchpad arranges all of VA’s apps into five categories for Veterans:

·  health management

· healthcare team communication

· vital health information sharing

· mental health improvement

· quality of life improvement

The new app enables Veterans to access all the features with a single secure login and also includes many mental health care and personal improvement tools for individuals who are not enrolled in VA healthcare services. These tools are free and do not require secure logins to use.

VA Launchpad for Veterans is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play. To access VA’s secure apps within VA Launchpad, users must be a VA patient and have one of the following accounts: Premium My HealtheVet, DS Logon Level 2 (Premium) or
