VA Launches New Dashboard for Advanced Liver Disease caused by Hepatitis C

The VA just launched the Hepatitis C-Advanced Liver Disease (Hep C-ALD) Dashboard that aims to make it easier for the VA to identify and accelerate treatment for veterans with ALD as a result of Hep C. The Hep C-ALD dashboard uses a set of criteria such as gender, age, dates of service, geography and ethnicity to identify veterans at greatest risk for developing ALD as a result of Hep C.

Chronic Hepatitis C is the most common blood-borne infection in the world, yet 75% of those infected don’t know it. Serious complications like liver damage leading to cirrhosis, primary liver cancer, liver failure, or even death can occur when Hep C is left untreated. Using the data from the dashboard, the VA can reach out to at-risk veterans and provide appropriate care in a timely manner. For more information on the Hep C-ALD Dashboard, go to
