My HealtheVet: Veteran care made easy
My HealtheVet, VA’s online personal health record, is a free tool to help all Veterans, including Gulf War Veterans, take charge of their health care. “It’s a great tool,” said Gulf War Veteran Timothy Connors. Connors uses MyHealtheVet to help him remember the medicines he takes, reorder medicines, and check appointments.
MyHealtheVet allows Veterans to:
Access and manage medical records: Veterans can quickly access and manage their VA medical records online and keep track of test results. Veterans can also record their health history, including allergies, immunization history, medical events, family health history, and military history.
Refill prescriptions and track delivery: My HealtheVet’s prescription refill feature allows Veterans to request a refill online and track prescription deliveries. Veterans can also find a history of their VA prescriptions and detailed information on active medications.
Communicate with VA health care providers and view appointments: My HealtheVet’s Secure Messaging feature gives Veterans a safe and convenient way to communicate online with their VA health care provider between appointments. Veterans can talk about their health, follow-up care instructions, medications, lab results, and other routine questions. Veterans can also view upcoming VA appointments.
Focus on health: MyHealthevet offers the healtheliving assessment, an online test that estimates a Veteran’s health age based on responses about their medical history and health choices. It also provides tips on ways to improve their health. Veterans can also keep a food and activity journal on MyHealtheVet, and store vitals including blood pressure, heart rate, body weight, temperature, and pain level.
