PE Coach is designed for Veterans, Servicemembers and others to use in Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with a behavioral health professional. The App provides tools to help users work with their therapist during PE therapy to process their traumatic experience and reduce anxiety and fear.
The PTSD Coach App was designed for Servicemembers and Veterans who have, or may have, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This App provides readily available tools to manage PTSD-related symptoms and stress and supports Servicemembers and Veterans with self-assessments, symptom-tracking capabilities, educational materials, and coping skills to address and monitor stress.
For both VA and non-VA care teams, particularly direct care providers including nurses, physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) specialists and Imaging staff, the Safe Patient Handling App provides evidence-based Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SPHM) techniques to help provide the safest care possible to patients. The app offers a blend of knowledge and tools to prevent injury of both health care professionals and the patients they care for by incorporating patient assessments, scoring tools, algorithms, equipment guides, videos for training and peer leader activity checklists. The information in this app offers the current best practices in SPHM at the point of care, preventing injury and improving interactions between patients and health care professionals.
The Stay Quit Coach App was designed to help Veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) quit smoking. The App guides users in creating a tailored plan that takes into account their personal reasons for quitting. It provides information about smoking and quitting, interactive tools to help users cope with urges to smoke, and motivational messages and support contacts to help users stay smoke-free. This treatment is based on evidence-based clinical practices, and has been shown to double quit rates for Veterans with PTSD.
If you are a Veteran enrolled in VA health care, the Summary of Care App lets you receive and view your VA medical information in one place and from the convenience of your mobile device.
If you are a Veteran enrolled in VA health care, the VA Launchpad houses all Apps that connect to VA’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) and access your personal VA health information. This tool groups together VA’s Mobile Apps that require a secure logon to access your EHR. By signing in to the VA Launchpad once with a DS Logon Level 2 (Premium) Account, you can access multiple Apps without logging in to each one individually. (NOTE: You can also access the Apps separately without going through the Launchpad.)
If you are a Veteran enrolled in VA health care, the Veteran Appointment Request (VAR) App allows you to request and view primary care and mental health appointments at VA facilities where you already receive care. VAR will also allow you to schedule and cancel selected primary care appointments directly through the app at facilities where you have a Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT).
