Vecna Gets DHA Authority to Operate for Patient Check-In Tech

Jeff Brody

Vecna Technologies has received an authority to operate from the Defense Health Agency to allow military treatment facilities to purchase and integrate the company’s patient check-in tool, which is designed to allow patients to confirm their healthcare appointments, to their networks.

Its check-in platform completed risk assessments and met stringent security standards under the Risk Management Framework to secure the ATO, the company said Thursday.

The technology can connect to electronic health record systems to assist clinical staff in handling visit status and room assignments, and has been utilized by 1,100 Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense and civilian facilities worldwide.

“I’m pleased that Vecna’s fully integrated patient self-service solution has now received certification and that we can look forward to the next steps in supporting DHA and the MTFs,” said Jason Washington, director of Vecna’s government business.
