VA Immersive is defining a new reality in Veteran health care by leading the nation in the clinical implementation of immersive technology and uncovering new ways to embrace employees' whole health. By engaging the senses of sight sound, and touch, immersive technology cultivates a new level of engagement to each Veteran's health care experience.
VA has now deployed more than 1,200 virtual reality (VR) headsets across more than 160 VA medical centers and outpatient clinics in all 50 U.S. states and Puerto Rico–advancing VA's commitment to connecting Veterans to the soonest and best care. The program also engages with industry, academia, and other Government agencies to co-develop content and engineer devices that are beneficial for our Nation's Veterans.
VA Immersive is also advancing how VA cares for, educates, and trains its learners, clinicians, and staff. Through VA-developed content and implementation of education and training platforms, VA is rising to the opportunity of immersive technology implementation across the entire organization.
