The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has an event next week. The Innovation Experience (iEX) Virtual Series will showcase advances in innovation, collaboration and technology that will improve and save veterans’ lives.
- Allison Amrhein, Director of Operations at the VHA Innovators Network, said the event will highlight technology, including virtual reality and clinical simulation, and initiatives, such as a national human-centered design effort to reimagine veteran health care.
- Amrhein said the process for developing and implementing new ideas starts with the Innovators Network, which empowers VHA employees to be innovative and create prototypes, then incorporates Diffusion of Excellence to distribute them nationally.
- Innovators Network initiatives that have been adopted across the country have impacted over 2 million veterans, Amrhein said.
