Grants to USA States with certified critical access hospitals to provide mental health and other health care services to veterans residing in rural areas. Funding will be provided for telehealth services and health information network exchanges. Applicants are those the State Governor designates as an eligible applicant.

Eligible health information technology focus areas:

1. Telehealth Networks (RVHAP-TH): providing clinical services to rural veterans from more distant clinicians including both direct interactive tele-consultations and store-and-forward applications of telehealth service; and/or;

2. Health Information Exchange Networks (RVHAP-HIE): activities to support the transfer of clinical information for veterans in rural areas to other providers both within VA and its electronic health record system and private providers who are involved in their care with the goal of improving care coordination for the rural veteran.

RVHAP goals are as follows:

1) To utilize telehealth and health information technology to enhance access and quality of mental health service and other healthcare services to veterans residing in rural areas. These services include crisis intervention, detection of post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and other signature injuries which meet the needs of rural veterans. The services provided with RVHAP grant funds are in conjunction with veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) initiatives;

2) To utilize telehealth and health information technology, including electronic health records, to help improve care coordination for veterans who are seen by both the Department of Veterans Affairs and private health care providers through the sharing of clinical information that is compatible with VA privacy and security standards and uses established methods of health information exchange (HIE) currently in use by VA;

3) To expand existing networks to provide access to mental health and other services to rural veterans via partnerships with other healthcare entities such as: critical access hospitals, Federally Qualified Health Centers, rural health clinics, State hospital associations, home health agencies, mental health service providers, pharmacists, local Government agencies, private practice physicians, and other providers.
