Veterans Administration Unveils New Online Appointment Tool

The Veterans Administration has unveiled a new tool to help veterans make decisions about their healthcare.

The new Access and Quality Tool gives detailed wait times for patient care. By entering a city, the system will pull up a map showing all medical centers and clinics in the area and the average wait times at each clinic.

“No other health-care system in the country releases this type of information on wait times," Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. David J. Shulkin said in a news release.

Vets can also find reviews of care at the facility and compare the treatments to other hospitals in their area.

The VA has published a video explaining how the tool works.

The agency will make improvements based on the feedback it receives from veterans.
