VA Unveils Resource App for Veterans, Caregivers; Robert Wilkie Quoted

Robert Wilkie

The Department of Veterans Affairs has introduced a smartphone application that works to organize and streamline healthcare resources into a unified location for veterans and caregivers. The Launchpad for Veterans suite will enable users to access VA apps from five different categories namely mental health improvement, health care team communication, vital health information sharing and quality of life improvement, the agency said Monday.

Users do not need to enroll in any of VA’s healthcare services to utilize the suite’s personal improvement and mental health apps while the remaining tools will require accounts in DS Logon Level 2, ID .me and Premium My HealtheVet.

“VA has developed dozens of apps for Veterans to take charge of their health care,” said Robert Wilkie, secretary at the VA and 2019 Wash100 awardee. “VA Launchpad makes it easier to have these important tools available at your fingertips,” added Wilkie.
