Telehealth advocate. In addition to caring for veterans as a physician, Evans leads the development and adoption of telehealth across VA's sprawling enterprise. In 2019, that effort accelerated significantly so that veterans can now access care in VA hospitals and clinics, at third-party sites and at home via the VA Video Connect app. Nearly 100,000 veterans used the app to participate in at-home video appointments last year. Additionally, Evans took on the interim directorship of the Federal Electronic Health Record Modernization Office, a joint VA/Defense Department organization to support the adoption of a shared EHR system.
