McGuire VA - Center for Innovation
If you want to play a part in bringing innovation to the service of our Veterans’ health and healing, come meet and hear from leaders of the McGuire Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) in Richmond on McGuire’s Innovator Network, the national Center for Innovation and the dynamic links with VCU in research, development and clinical practice.
Since 2010, Veterans Administration Center for Innovation has worked to identify, test, and evaluate new approaches to the agency's most pressing challenges. Balancing the practical with the aspirational, VACI ensures a steady flow of high value innovations from concept to implementation, within the largest civilian cabinet agency.
VACI believes in innovation that provides a tangible value to Veterans and/or VA—not innovation for its own sake. The work of VACI is driven by a strong commitment to a Veteran-centered approach to service delivery, and dedication to data-driven decision making, design thinking, and agile development.
From empowering patients with access to their own electronic health records, to providing clinicians with time-saving and life-saving mobile technology, our innovations are measured by their ability to improve the quality of VA care and services, increase access to those services, reduce or control costs, and improve customer satisfaction.
The VA Center for Innovation is a team of innovators and doers who are constantly looking for opportunities to improve VA's products, services, and processes.
