Women Veterans Health Care
The Office of Women’s Health Services is proud to announce the release of the PreconceptionCare and Caring4Women Veterans mobile apps. The two apps are part of a series of free VA-developed apps under the Mobile Health Provider Program. The program is an effort to equip VA care teams with mobile technology to enhance the way they deliver care.
The Caring4Women Veterans app provides care teams with information to help address the unique physical and mental health issues that affect women Veterans. Women Veterans may have health care needs that differ from both male Veterans and the general female population. Because many women Veterans seek health care outside of the VA network, it is important that both their VA and non-VA providers have the resources necessary to provide informed and comprehensive care; the Caring4Women Veterans App provides this. Additional training materials and resources such as a User Manual, Slideshow and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) can be found Caring4Women Veterans App.
The Preconception Care app provides care teams with information to support the integration of preconception care into comprehensive primary care, thereby optimizing the health of women Veterans of reproductive age. The app provides a single, easy access point for provider-centered resources that address a variety of factors, including birth control usage, reproductive history, health status, family and genetic history and risks, vaccinations received and lifestyle factors. Additional training materials and resources such as a User Manual, Slideshow and FAQs can be found Preconception Care App.
