VLER Health Exchange

What is the VLER Health Exchange?

The VLER Health Exchange is a system that allows your VA/FHCC provider and your participating community care provider to securely access certain parts of your health record. This access reduces the need for you and your families to request and carry paper medical records from one health care provider to another.

Sign a form so your FHCC and Non-FHCC healthcare providers can securely share your health records electronically.

Your doctor will have a better picture and more complete summary of your health by:

  • Easily sharing your current medications with your doctors
  • Eliminating unnecessary medical tests
  • Improving your health by empowering you
