Vet360: Sharing information across VA to
enhance service to Veterans
Vet360 will transform the current
cumbersome process and provide a seamless experience for customers by
consolidating VA’s data silos. The foundation for this initiative is the
Master Data Management platform, which will deliver a single source of
truth for common Veteran data across various channels. Veterans or employees
will be able to review and update their contact information and those updates will be shared across the VA.
VA uses whole health to prevent Veteran suicide
Suicide prevention is VA’s top clinical
priority. Every suicide is a tragedy, and we will
not relent in our efforts to connect Veterans who are experiencing an
emotional or mental health crisis with lifesaving support.
