Remote Counseling Program

Under a subcontract from Inverness Technologies, New Editions will provide research support to assess the value of remote counseling services for veterans with service-connected disabilities to help them obtain, maintain, or retain employment or to live independently. New Editions will review the existing body of literature on the types of remote counseling techniques currently used in the private and public sectors and complete a cost-benefit analysis of remote counseling in rural areas. The goal of the study is to determine whether remote counseling enabled by technological solutions (video and audio) will support the timely provision of services and positive outcomes for those veterans with service-connected disabilities in 57 Veteran Affairs Regional Offices.
