Veterans' Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
The Veterans Affairs (VA) health system has both achieved success and struggled to provide safe care to its patients. In an effort to address shortcomings in care, this bill allocates additional funding to the VA. Goals of this legislation include regulating and improving staffing levels, enabling veterans to access non-VA facilities, and enhancing patient access to telemedicine.
