If you are a Veteran enrolled and receiving care at a VA medical center, you can “Connect Your Docs” through the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER) Health Information Exchange program. This program gives VA and participating community 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. It also provides other potential benefits to Veterans and their providers.
Notice: The VLER Health Authorization Form, VA Form 10-0485, expiration date is being extended from 5 to 10 years. After December 15, 2016, once a Veteran signs the VA Form 10-0485 Authorization Form, VA will be able to share health information with their participating community care providers for a period of 10 years instead of 5 years.
We encourage Veterans to sign up and/or renew the authorization by using eBenefits or by visiting their local Release of Information (ROI) Office. Additional instructions on how to sign up can be found at http://www.va.gov/VLER/vler-health-exchange-registration-guide.asp.
