This week, Post 5 added the ATLAS pod to help the VA bring care to veterans in Emporia and the surrounding areas.
ATLAS (Accessing Telehealth through Local Area Stations) is part of VA’s Anywhere to Anywhere telehealth initiative, which sets out to better serve the nearly 9 million Veterans who receive care through VA – no matter where they are.
ATLAS has teamed up with public and private organizations to enhance underserved Veterans’ access to VA health care by offering them convenient locations to receive VA care closer to home. This new option reduces obstacles such as long travel times to appointments and poor internet connectivity at home. (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 2022).
