VLER Health


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.



If you visit VA health care facilities and non-VA health care providers, signing up for VLER Health Exchange can make it easier for your providers to coordinate and manage your care by securely sharing certain parts of your health record with each other electronically.

Non-VA Partner

If you are a health care provider outside of VA (also called a non-VA partner), then both VLER Health Exchange and VLER Health Direct can help you to securely share health information for your Veteran patients. VLER Health Exchange allows VA and non-VA providers to securely share certain summary health information for a Veteran patient. VLER Health Direct is a secure email-like service for VA providers to send/receive coded health information to non-VA health care providers that have Direct partnerships with VA. With a more complete record of a Veteran’s health, you can make more informed decisions about your patients’ care and improve the quality of the care you provide overall.

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.
