If you visit non-VA health care providers (click for the current list of participating community health care providers), participating in VLER Health Exchange makes it easier for your team of health care providers to coordinate and manage care. With VLER Health Exchange, VA and communinty health care providers can securely share certain parts your health record electronically.
That means both your VA and community health care providers can securely access information on your allergies, health problems, medications, and more. This should help you and your health care providers, avoid the need to fax, mail or carry paper health records from one provider to another.
It also means VA and community health care providers can access more of your key health care information in near real time, instead of days or weeks — enabling them to quickly make informed decisions that result in better care. Participating in VLER Health also may:
- Give your provider immediate access to more of your health care information.
- Reduce your chances of having duplicate procedures done.
- Increase your safety by providing a more complete medical record, such as a list of your medications and allergies.
- Save you time and money.
- Improve your health outcomes by empowering you.
