T-Mobile Stands Strong with U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as Telehealth Visits Surge 800%

Summary: 

What's the news

With nearly 20,000 VA telehealth visits a day — an 800% surge from before the COVID-19 crisis began — T-Mobile is helping to keep more veterans connected to their doctors than ever before.

Why it matters

With stay-home orders in place and doctors reducing in-person appointments, telehealth provides a great alternative. And, for the millions of veterans who live in rural America and drive an average of 25-50 miles to healthcare, this important service lets them work their shift and see their doctor from the safety of their own home, without having to travel or miss work.

Who it's for

The more than nine million veterans served by the VA.
