Nicole Freeman | EHR Intelligence | November 27, 2013

To celebrate ten years of success with My HealtheVet, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is encouraging both veterans and servicemembers to utilize the personal health record (PHR) system. The system has a variety of benefits for users, including VA Blue Button, VA prescription refills, and secure provider messaging.

My HealtheVet coordinators from the VA’s 151 medical centers have hosted community events, educational sessions, and enrollment fairs throughout November to promote the ever-expanding online health record. The award-winning website allows users constant access to parts of their VA health care records, with tools to track health activities, refill prescriptions online, and view appointments and lab results.
