When you use the tools My HealtheVet provides, you become an active partner in your health care. And the best part is, you can easily access My HealtheVet 24 hours a day/7days a week.
Secure Messaging through My HealtheVet is now available within all primary care, surgery, and specialty medicine clinics at all VISN 4 VA medical centers. Expansion of Secure Messaging throughout all other clinical areas at each medical center is underway. This online tool allows you to communicate about non-urgent health related information in a private and safe, online environment. Some of the benefits for using Secure Messaging include:
- Promotes a partnership between you and your health care team
- Provides a safe, alternative communication means that is convenient and flexible
- Reduces the need for telephone calls and waiting on hold
- May decrease unscheduled clinic walk-ins
