Following the VHA’s Expansion of Get Well Solutions Across 13,000 Inpatient Beds, Recent Findings Have Underscored a Dramatic Enhancement in the Quality of Care Provided to Veterans

Beyond check-ins, Get Well has transformed Veteran care with personalized pathways, streamlined service requests, automated tasks, discharge prep, educational content, and instant feedback.
