Iron Bow is one of the four companies awarded the contract which also include Care Innovations, LLC, Medtronic Care Management Services and 1Vision LLC. The 5 year VA Home telehealth contract will support the ongoing and emerging business needs of the Veterans Health Administration’s (VHA) national Home Telehealth Program (HT).
By leveraging Iron Bow’s expertise in telehealth with Vivify Health’s experience with hundreds of hospitals and providers across the U.S. serves as a synergistic best-in-class partnership to deliver remote healthcare to the VA under this contractual effort.
The importance of this contract is to deliver a constant level of care to the Veteran constituency through the use of medical devices and virtual visits directly from patient homes to raise the quality of care and standard of living for Veterans throughout the U.S. Utilizing home Telehealth solutions, VA clinicians will be able to continuously monitor and interact with patients, providing the opportunity to educate the Veteran population on various self-care options as well as lower risk of repeat hospitalization
