Herndon, VA – March 1, 2018 –Iron Bow Technologies, an information technology solutions provider to healthcare, government and commercial markets, launches the fourth annual nationwide tour of its Telehealth Education Delivered Vehicle, TED. Today TED takes off for its annual cross country trek, showcasing the latest in telehealth solutions.
Now in its fourth year, TED’s mission is to educate and increase the use of telehealth within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) by raising the awareness and understanding on how these technologies can improve overall efficiency while enhancing patient access, outcomes and experiences.

The technologies showcased, on TED, enable telehealth in many modalities such as mental health, women’s health, wound care, audiology, and primary care, to name a few. New technologies featured on the vehicle this year include patient and provider mobile devices with applications to include, VA Video Connect (VVC), VA Online Scheduling (VAOS), Patient Viewer and Schedule Manager, and an automated hearing test solution where patients can self-administer without an audiologist present.
