Las Vegas - Sands Convention Center
Interoperability Showcase|11955| VA Area

Description

The United States Postal Service (USPS®) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are collaborating to empower USPS Employees/Veterans to manage their health data and integrate health information from multiple sources. We will demonstrate how USPS employees who receive care at VA can transmit their VA health information from My HealtheVet to Health Connect, a free-standing personal health record supported by USPS. Veterans can then combine this information with standardized health information documents from the Department of Defense or community providers.
