Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record

"Connect Your Docs" through the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER), the Veteran's Health Information Exchange Program . This program gives VA and community 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. It also provides other potential benefits to Veterans and their providers.
