The VLER Health Information Exchange program allows VA and non-VA health care providers to access important parts of Veteran electronic health records.
The Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER) Health program gives VA and non-VA health care providers secure access to certain parts of your electronic health record. This access reduces the need for Veterans and their families to request and carry paper medical records from one health care provider to another, and provides other potential benefits to Veterans and their providers.
Three out of every four Veterans who use VA health care services also receive a portion of their health care from non-VA providers. This may be you. Sharing certain parts of your electronic health records reduces the need for you and your family to mail or carry paper records between health care providers. It also helps VA staff to share health information more securely and efficiently.
VA is committed to protecting your privacy. Both VLER Health Exchange and VLER Health Direct use secure technologies for information sharing between VA and non-VA providers. Only non-VA health care providers and organizations that have partnership agreements with VA and are part of VA’s approved, trusted network may receive VLER Health information.
You can sign up for VLER in four simple steps.
