New Health and Wellness Apps for Veterans
VA is launching a number of mobile apps to help Veterans live healthier lives. These apps will expand care beyond the traditional office visit by offering easy access to medical information and increased communication between patients and VA care teams. For more information about these and other apps, please visit the VA App Store at mobile.va.gov/appstore.
Annie for Veterans
Annie is a text messaging system that can be used by Veterans on a smartphone or a basic cell phone. Annie promotes self-care through text messages such as appointment reminders, educational messages, medical facility updates, and prompts for Veterans to send back their own health readings to Annie. National release targeted to begin summer 2016.
Mobile Blue Button
Mobile Blue Button allows you to access, print, download, and store information from your VA Electronic Health Record (EHR). National release targeted to begin spring 2016.
Summary of Care
Summary of Care lets you receive and view your VA medical information—including lab results, medications, allergies, and more—in one place and from the convenience of your mobile device. National release targeted to begin spring 2016.
Veteran Appointment Request
Veteran Appointment Request allows you to request primary care and mental health appointments at VA facilities where you already receive care, and to schedule and cancel selected primary care appointments directly through the app. Limited field testing targeted to begin spring 2016.
