The Mobile Health Blog

This is the first of a blog series on new military health podcasts produced by the Defense Health Agency. This initial post highlights why podcasts are a useful resource both for military beneficiaries and their health care teams.

In an earlier blog, I related how I first used a mobile app with a patient. “George”, an Operation Enduring Freedom veteran, spent two weeks at home and then two weeks off working in the Texas oilfields.

My first patient who used a mobile app in therapy worked in the Texas oilfields. When I was a young clinician, I was introduced to integrating mobile apps during my time at a Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Primary Care-Mental Health Integration clinic in rural Texas.

As the Education and Training Program lead at Defense Health Agency (DHA) Connected Health, I get a lot of questions from providers about what to expect from one of our mobile health training workshops. My answer?

Whenever there’s an incident involving deadly force in the military, a review is conducted afterward.
