CHANTILLY, Va. – On the heels of a partnership with Vivify Health, Iron Bow Technologies has been awarded a $258 million contract from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to deliver scalable in-home telehealth services to veterans.
The award spotlights Iron Bow’s expertise in telehealth and with the VA, as well as Vivify Health’s remote patient monitoring platform experience with hospitals and providers across the country.
“Iron Bow has supported the VA with its globally recognized telehealth initiatives since 2011,” said Rene LaVigne, CEO and president of Iron Bow, in a statement. “We are honored to receive the mission of providing increased remote access to care for our veterans.”
The goal of the contract is to deliver a constant level of care to veterans by using medical devices and conducting virtual visits directly from patient homes, all in an effort to raise the quality of care and standard of living for veterans throughout the U.S. Using home telehealth solutions, VA clinicians will be able to continuously monitor and interact with patients, providing the opportunity to educate the veteran population on various self-care options, as well as lower the risk of repeat hospitalization.
“With Iron Bow as our partner, we have high confidence that we can mutually provide the VA with the best access to continuum care for our U.S. veterans,” added Eric Rock, CEO and founder of Vivify Health, in a statement.
