What does @T2Health do? Here’s a clip from their website:
“The National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) is a component center of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE). In FY 2013, DCoE was aligned with the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command.
“The mission of T2 is to lead the innovation of health technology solutions for psychological health and traumatic brain injury, and deliver tested, valued health solutions that improve the lives of our nation’s warriors, veterans, and their families.
“Our vision is world-class health care and optimized health in the DoD through effective leveraging of behavioral science and technology.
“T2’s advanced health technology solutions are user-friendly, valued by our warriors, and cost-effective. These qualities align with the Military Health System Quadruple Aim to ensure readiness, population health, experience of care, and responsible management of the total cost of health care. T2 also supports the DoD’s goals of increasing access to care, establishing best practices and quality standards for health technology and telehealth, and reducing both military suicide rates and the prevalence of stigma associated with seeking behavioral health services.”
