Serving Our Veterans: Modernizing and Streamlining Healthcare Services

Welcome to the 11th VA Healthcare Summit!
Upon entering its second decade of success and growth, IDGA would like to thank all of the past speakers, sponsors, partners and attendees for making VA Healthcare Summit the de facto annual gathering for anyone who wants to be in-the-know about the latest developments at the VA. The 11th VA Healthcare Summit 2020 is set to be the biggest iteration yet with the traditional mix of rich content, exclusive networking and professional development opportunities that will once again make it a can’t-miss event this year.

The Secretary recently outlined five key priorities for the VA which include; giving veterans greater choice about where and how they receive health care, modernizing the VA enterprise, reducing wait times for services, improving resource management and preventing suicide. VA Healthcare Summit will gather keynote speakers from the VA to discuss these priorities and outline the strategies and requirements to achieve these goals, enabling our attendees to align their own plans and objectives with the needs of the VA. 

Attendees at the VA Healthcare Summit have diverse backgrounds and a wide range of different professional development needs. For healthcare practitioners, this event provides Continuing Medical Education credits to develop the knowledge, skills and professional performance abilities to better serve their patients. For healthcare industry professionals, it provides a unique opportunity to listen to and network with a select pool of VA and industry executives in order to build lasting and fruitful professional relationships.

There is no substitute for this annual opportunity to meet peers and thought leaders face-to-face for knowledge gathering and networking. In our exhibit hall, attendees can also anticipate hands-on demonstrations of new solutions and the opportunity to benchmark and have technical questions answered in person by experts.

The VA Healthcare Summit 2020 team has been working hard to create a rich environment for our attendees which will enhance not only their experience on site but also expand their knowledge on the pressing VA healthcare challenges and increase their professional circle by connecting with like-minded people. We look forward to seeing you at the VA Healthcare Summit 2020!

Note: Although the subject matter of this IDGA conference relates to VA healthcare, this is a non-VA event. IDGA is solely responsible for its content and neither the Department of Veterans Affairs nor any of its components (VHA, VBA) have sponsored or endorsed this event or IDGA.
