  • Convenience and Self-Service Appointment Check-In at your Fingertips
    Check-in for your next VA appointment might be different next time you come in. Beginning this summer, some VA facilities will allow Veterans to do one or both of these: Start the check-in process up to seven days in advance of the appointment. Check in at the clinic using your smartphone on the day of your appointment. As part of how VA is modernizing the way Veterans receive care, VA received extensive feedback from Veterans and caregivers about how the checking-in process can be made better, especially for those who use assistive technologies to access their benefits online. VA’s Office of Information and Technology, partnering with VHA, has applied this feedback to the design of the new, modernized patient check-in application coming soon to your location. At all VA locations by the end of August 2022 VA is deploying the application at facilities geographically. Deployment within all VISNs will occur by the end of August 2022.
