The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is committed to providing our Nation’s veterans with timely, accessible, and high-quality care. VA intends to honor this commitment by improving performance, promoting a positive culture of service, increasing operational effectiveness and accountability, advancing healthcare innovation through research, and training future VA clinicians. The Office of Community Care (OCC) administers health benefits programs for veterans and their family members. In June 2018, Congress passed the VA Maintaining Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks Act of 2018 (MISSION Act). This legislation consolidates VA’s community care programs into a new Veterans Community Care Program that will help to ensure veterans choose VA by getting them the right care at the right time from the right provider.
Red Gate provides executive support services to ensure OCC is positioned to address the ever-changing healthcare landscape and the ongoing improvements of the new Veterans Community Care Program.
