MoPOC increases access to Orthotic & Prosthetic (O&P) specialty service for Veterans that struggle to travel to VA Medical Centers. By traveling to smaller VA clinics located in rural communities, MoPOC reduces or eliminates the patient travel burden, helping to ensure that Veterans are able to choose VA for lifelong O&P care.

This innovation is scaling widely with the support of national stakeholders. See more scaling innovations.
