Valor Healthcare is proud to announce its selection as one of four companies awarded a position on Veterans Affairs’ (VA) eight-year, $1.032 billion contract to provide Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Home Telehealth (HT) services for veterans.
VA’s Office of Connected Care will deploy the systems and tools needed to monitor veterans’ chronic health conditions while they are at home. The contract award represents the largest Remote Patient Monitoring effort in the federal government.
The VA’s award notice, posted Monday, May 1st, states that the work supports at least 72,000 veterans whose needs can include chronic care, acute care, health promotion, disease prevention, and non-institutional care. Awardees will also be responsible for providing prosthetic appliances in support of care coordination and chronic disease management efforts.
Valor Healthcare is uniquely positioned to deliver high-quality RPM-HT services to veterans across the country. Valor is the largest private provider of Community Based Outpatient Clinics to VA, providing direct primary care and mental health services to over 140,000 veterans across the country. With this award, Valor Healthcare is the only private company in the United States providing veterans both in-person care in brick-and-mortar facilities and care delivered via Remote Patient Monitoring and Home Telehealth.
“We are both honored and humbled to be selected as one of four contractors to provide RPM-HT services for the VA,” said Dr. Scot Wise, President and CEO of Valor Healthcare. “We have assembled an extraordinary team of RPM-HT technology industry leaders, and we are committed to leveraging our collective expertise with this technology, this patient population, and this customer to help VA deliver unparalleled RPM-HT services to the most deserving patient population in the world.” The VA’s decision to award this contract to Valor Healthcare underscores the government’s commitment to providing high-quality care to veterans across the country. Valor Healthcare has a 25-year, proven record of delivering exceptional healthcare services to veterans and other patriots serving our country.
The VA’s RPM-HT services are especially important now, given the increased demand for remote healthcare services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and are a key part of VA’s healthcare delivery modernization effort. The RPM-HT technologies provided by Valor Healthcare and the other companies awarded this contract enable veterans to better self-manage their chronic conditions and alert caregivers or other medical personnel to needs for active care and case management, including referral to a clinic or hospital for in-person care.
