Community Viewer

Community Viewer is a secure, web-based application that allows community providers to view a Veteran's electronic health record (EHR) using a web browser. It does not require any software installation and is accessed with a username and password provided by VA Community Care staff. This exchange of data improves care coordination and continuity of care for VA patients receiving care outside of the VA network.

Access Community Viewer

To request access to Community Viewer, email:
Community Provider Technical Service Desk

Providers will receive a username and password which allows them to log into Community Viewer to view the VA health history for patients assigned to them. VA staff provide these credentials the first time a Veteran is assigned to a community provider.
