VA Should Develop “MyVA” App for Cell Phone

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Statistics show that 91% of Americans now use cell phones. Over 35% of Americans now own a smart phone.


There is an App for everything these days. The VA has a great website online. There are a lot of private companies that have Apps that give VA information.


The VA should develop this App to include information such as: *MyVA; *Check Status of Claim; VA Medical Center Appointment Reminder; FAQ’s; Most Popular Topics; VA News; Etc.


Less VA Medical appointments will be missed. The result will be a greater communication to the Veterans and their families, which will reduce the amount of walk-in and phones calls to VA offices.


This action will give the American Taxpayer the Federal Government that he/she expects and deserves.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
