This Holiday Season, we are Thankful for paperless care coordination of electronic health records between the Department of Veterans Affair’ (VA) and your participating community care providers!  By electronically sharing your record with participating providers through the Veterans Health Information Exchange (VHIE), your participating community care providers can better manage your care, so you and your family will not need to request and carry paper medical records from one health care provider to another.
