My HealtheVet is VA’s online personal health record, designed for Veterans and active duty servicemembers, as well as their dependents and caregivers. It partners users with their health care team, offering the tools necessary to make informed decisions about their health care.
My HealtheVet offers three account types—basic, advanced, and premium. A basic account, which does not require identity authentication, allows users to record information in a personal health journal, track personal health measurements, as well as use the VA Blue Button to view, print, save, or download their information.
For an advanced or premium account, the user must be a Veteran enrolled in VA care. Advanced and premium accounts offer Veterans access to some information in their VA and/or DoD records, including key portions of their VA health record, such as allergies, appointments, laboratory results, and more. Among the newest features available to Veterans with premium accounts are notes; clinical information that your health care team records during appointments or hospital stays. MyHealtheVet also allows patients to communicate online with their VA health care team without having to wait on the phone or at a local VA health care facility through the secure messaging feature.
My HealtheVet allows Veterans and their caregivers the opportunity to explore a variety of ways to monitor and improve their health. With the tools My HealtheVet provides, Veterans can become an active partner in their own health care.
