Latest Mobile Apps, Clinical Support Tools Available for Service Members, Veterans and Families

Aug. 24, 2017; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

Research shows that technology can help behavioral health patients follow treatment plans and engage better with their providers. Yet many clinicians don’t have guidance on how to effectively and safely use these resources.

The goal of this webinar is to share the latest Defense Department (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) mobile health apps and clinical support tools developed to help the military community. Presenters will review the latest research on using mobile apps to improve patient outcomes, and share best practices for using them in the clinical care setting.

Participants will learn to:

  • Describe the latest DoD and VA mobile health apps and clinical support tools, and strategies to use them with clinical care
  • Evaluate current empirical research on how DoD and VA mobile apps can improve patient outcomes
  • Examine best practices for using mobile health technology in clinical care settings
