Since 2013, our volunteers have worked with veterans at the William "Bill" Kling VA Outpatient Clinic to help them with My HealtheVet, an online portal that has linked older veterans to their medical information on the internet. As a result, adoption of this technology by our veterans is among the highest in the country.
But what can we learn from this successful effort?
To answer that question, SoFIA's first "Think" project in partnership with the VA Clinic and Nova Southeastern University will apply practice-based research methods to assess the program's outcomes and opportunities. We can then use these lessons to refine, develop and implement similar programs across South Florida to ensure older adults are adopting technology.
