On behalf of the Secretary’s Center for Strategic Partnerships and Office of Connected Care, you are invited to join us and our partners for a national Anywhere to Anywhere, Together summit designed to help increase connectivity and access to telemedicine and remote care for Veterans. We are honored that VA Secretary Robert Wilkie and FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, will be featured speakers at the summit. Anywhere to Anywhere, Together has a goal to foster innovation and facilitate partnership-based solutions to promote collaboration between the VA and world-class telemedicine leadership.

Anywhere to Anywhere, Together is the first event in our Center’s Partnering to Success series. While the VA is leading the nation in Telemedicine with 900,000 visits last year, the summit will focus on extending access to best in class quality of care for Veterans through this platform. Thought leaders in the field will be presented with current challenges, and in work groups, discuss potential solutions and creative ideas to accelerate the rate of progress in the delivery of telehealth medicine at the VA. This dialogue will facilitate lasting collaborations that will extend well beyond the summit and their solutions will benefit not only Veterans, but also all Americans as health care delivery systems continue to evolve and shift with ever increasing technology. Several organizations have already made partnership commitments that will be announced during the summit.

Anywhere to Anywhere, Together will build on the extraordinary leadership and trailblazing efforts of numerous distinguished VA clinicians, private sector innovators, thought leaders, and industry leaders. We will gather many influential voices in the field of telehealth and remote care– to include the Federal Communications Commission, Veterans, industry, foundations, and many more.

Anywhere to Anywhere, Together event partners currently include Philips, Intel, Optum, Amazon Web Services, and GE Healthcare. Working Group partners include Philips, Dell, IBM, and Booz Allen Hamilton.
