VA uses a lot of technology. All patient charts are on the computer. VA uses special bar codes to be sure there are no mix-ups when patients get their pills in the hospital. Veterans get their medicines mailed right to their homes. This is called the computerized mail out pharmacy.
Have you heard of Telemedicine?
Telemedicine uses special equipment and computers. It allows people miles away from each other to talk face-to-face. This helps veterans who might not be able to travel far to see a special doctor. VA uses satellite shows to train workers.
