VA Healthcare Summit 2021 Summit

October 27-29, 2021- Falls Church, VA, United States

Delivering the Highest-Quality Care to our Nation' s Heroes

Across the entirety of the United States Government, there is no priority more imperative than that of providing the highest-quality care to our nation's Veterans. As the largest integrated health care network in the United States, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is tasked with providing care to our nation's Veterans. In order to provide Veterans with the world-class benefits and services they have rightfully earned, it requires a multitude of collaboration across organizations throughout the VA, one that must be ever modernizing to meet the evolving needs of our nation's Veterans.

As Veteran and current day healthcare priorities continue to evolve, the VA has and must continue to pivot its services and offerings to ensure it can remain relevant in an increasingly digital age. In doing so, the Veterans Affairs Secretary, the Honorable Wilkie, has identified four crucial modernization priorities to accelerate the Department' s transformation as it relates to interacting with, and how the VA ultimately serves Veterans, their families, caregivers, survivors, and the Nation.

Our Veterans Affairs Healthcare Summit is now in its 15th iteration, and is an industry-wide staple for those supporting the VA's mission set. Our partners across the Military, Government, Private Health, academia and consultant communities have consistently made this event a marquee gathering for those senior stakeholders. With a Summit regularly hosting over 350+ attendees, this engagement opportunity will provide those leaders across the VA Healthcare ecosystem the chance to learn, share, and connect with our Nation's Veterans to improve health, access, and delivery, and for the first time in well over a year, the opportunity to collaborate in person!
