Telemedicine is a significant impetus for the advancement of psychological services to veterans. The Department of Veterans Affairs has been historically dedicated to providing immediate and accessible patient-centered care to veterans through cutting-edge approaches to technology. Mental health services are currently available to patients through two telehealth modalities: clinical video telehealth (CVT) offered between two clinics and home telehealth connecting clinic and home. This chapter outlines the key protocols for implementing telemedicine for veterans. Once the infrastructure is established, barriers such as age and human factors can be addressed through a variety of modified approaches. Telemedicine is a rapidly growing field enabling veterans to connect with timely and convenient care.
