My HealtheVet is a web-based program that gives veterans information and tools to improve their health. Registration is required to have full access to all features. Registrants can access more than 18 million pages of health information from the site’s Health Education Library.
They are able to:
- Add information to a personal health journal about over-the-counter medications, allergies, military health history, medical events, tests and allergies.
- Record and track personal information such as contact information, emergency contacts, health care providers, and health insurance information.
- Record and track personal health metrics (blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, heart rate, body temperature, weight, and pain) in Health E-logs.
- Print a wallet ID card with the personal information entered into the personal health record.
More information about educational and health promotion materials are available on the Healthy Living site. This site is a library of educational and health promotion materials on healthy living to enable Veterans to take control of their own health: from eating right, exercise, smoking cessation and caregiver support.
