Virtual Education Center
The Virtual Education Center (VEC) provides accurate medical and health information to our patients while giving our providers the power to create personalized dashboards and share relevant health and medical information by video, audio and web links.
During the initial six-month preliminary phase, or pilot, patients have access to nearly 50,000 educational resources covering 60 medical topics from more than 230 organizations. The digital platform is accessible using any mobile device or computer with internet access and will integrate with DEERS and DMDC for a seamless experience.
Beginning the week of January 30, the VEC is available in Behavioral Health, Pediatrics, Women’s Health, Urology, Pulmonology, Infectious Disease and Gastroenterology Clinics. BAMC is the first military hospital within the Military Health System to make this state-of-the-art tool available to providers and patients.
Doctors can send factual medical information directly to patients following their appointments to aid in their recovery or improve their overall health. Additionally, patients can research their medical issues in advance of their appointments ensuring the quality of the appointment and its outcome.
The VEC will be available to providers and patients in BAMC’s Internal Medicine Clinic, CPT Jennifer M. Moreno Primary Care Clinic and McWethy Troop Medical Clinic February 27.
