This graph shows responses to a Veterans Signals survey given to Veteran patients after an outpatient appoinment at a VA health care site. The range of responses are dated from July 2016 through October 2018. Veterans were asked if they trust the VA for care, if they trust the VA specifically for outpatient care, asked to rate the ease of getting VA outpatient care, the effectiveness of their health care visit and if their emotional experience was positive at VA.

VA analyzes what Veterans are saying about their outpatient experiences (including mental health, primary care, optometry, physical therapy, cardiology, etc.), and levels of outpatient ease, effectiveness, and emotion are anticipated to drive increases in outpatient trust using Veterans Signal survey technology.

Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) is responsible for administering programs that provide financial and other forms of assistance to Veterans, their dependents and their survivors. Through a variety of modernization initiatives and improved business processes, VBA strives to deliver Veterans compensation benefit decisions and services within a timely manner.
