Veterans Health Information Exchange program (VHIE)
VA is changing electronic health information sharing options to improve care coordination and continuity of care
VA electronically shares the right information at the right time with participating community care providers who treat you, in order to help you and your health care team make the most informed treatment decisions. This instant exchange of information can dramatically improve patient safety, especially during emergency situations. VA is committed to protecting Veteran privacy. VA only shares Veteran health information with specific community providers when a Veteran is seeking medical care. Only community providers and organizations that have partnership agreements with VA and are part of VA’s approved, trusted network may receive VA health information.
