Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center
Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record Health Program
Do You See a Non-VA Health Care Provider?
VLER Health is a program that shares certain parts of your Veteran health record between the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Department of Defense (DOD), and selected private health care providers over a secure and confidential network known as the eHealth Exchange. This program is free and voluntary for Veterans.
How might VLER Health benefit me? Many Veterans receive a portion of their care from non-VA health care providers. Sharing certain parts of your Electronic Health Record (EHR) will help reduce the need for patients and families to carry records between health care providers as well as allow your private health care provider to make more informed decisions about your care. In an emergency, immediate access to additional health care information could save your life.
Who can view my health information? Your non-VA health care provider and VA doctors will both be able to see certain parts of your health record and use it to create a better picture of your overall health.
