A program to bring more than 1,000 iPads to the families of seriously injured Post-9/11 veterans is expected to provide improved health services to service men and women dealing with special conditions.

While caring for injured veterans is initially done at military hospitals, it’s often family members and other caregivers that provide ongoing and daily services.

Knowing that it still needed to track the progress of these veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs decided to empower these caregivers with a program that would capture the veteran’s medical information and report the data back to the VA. The solution also needed to be mobile enough for it to be effective.
