Trump hails new efforts to improve veterans' healthcare

President Trump announced new efforts Thursday to use technology to improve veterans' healthcare.

Initiatives include using video technology and diagnostic tools to conduct medical exams. Veterans also will be able to use mobile devices to make and manage appointments with Veterans Administration doctors.

"We call it 'anywhere to anywhere' VA healthcare," Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin said Thursday.

A medical doctor, Shulkin wore his white coat to the White House announcement, during which he demonstrated the technologies for Trump.

"This will significantly expand access to care for our veterans, especially for those who need help in the area of mental health, which is a bigger and bigger request, and also in suicide prevention," Trump said. "It will make a tremendous difference for the veterans in rural locations in particular."

A regulation will need to be issued for the services to be provided anywhere in the country.
