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.

"We are both honored and humbled to be selected as one of four contractors to provide RPM-HT services for the VA," said Dr. Scott 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."

Valor Healthcare has a 25-year, proven record of delivering exceptional healthcare services to veterans and other patriots serving our country.
