VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System
VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System uses high-speed internet/video conferencing technology. Using telehealth services, you may be able to see your provider from your local CBOC.
There are three forms of telehealth:
Clinical Video Telehealth (CVT)
CVT uses interactive video conferencing and peripheral medical technologies to provide care and support care delivery between clinics and hospitals, when distance separates the individuals.
Benefits of Telehealth
- Patients have improved access to health care services and specialties
- Convenient for patients and providers
- Enables and improves provider collaboration to optimize patient care outcomes
- Appointments can be scheduled at the nearest community based outpatient clinic (CBOC) to avoid traveling long distances to see a specialist.
Who Can Use Telehealth?
Speak with your provider to see if you are a candidate for telehealth.
What Specialties Can I Access Through Telehealth?
Specialties participating include, but are not limited to:
- Anesthesia Pre-Op
- Infectious Disease
- Mental Health
This listing is a sample of services provided. New services are continually being added to meet patient needs.
Telehealth Visits Can Be Scheduled for Veterans in:
- Grand Island

Care Coordination Home Telehealth (CCHT)
Veterans with chronic disease such as Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, diabetes, heart failure or chronic pulmonary disease can be monitored at home using home telehealth technologies.
Care Coordination Store-and-Forward (CCSF)
In the near future during a clinic appointment, we will be able to offer a new program, Care Coordination Store-and-Forward for your teleretinal exam at every facility including CBOCs. This involves storing an image that is forwarded to a specialist for review.
