VA Selects Partners for Project Convergence

The Department of Veterans Affairs has partnered with Verizon, Microsoft and Medivis to identify clinical uses for technology that combine health innovations with 5G wireless communications capabilities.

Project Convergence is part of VA's initiative to deliver the agency’s "first advanced, 5G-enabled" clinical care system at its Palo Alto hospital in Livermore, California. According to VA, the project is expected to unveil and demonstrate initial clinical uses of the combined technologies next month, MeriTalk reported Tuesday.

Robert Wilkie, VA secretary, said they look forward to the opportunity to work with partners in developing foundational practices and deploying advanced medical solutions to serve the nation’s Veterans.
