Electronic health records go mobile for veterans

April 1, 2011

EHRs

Northrop Grumman has introduced a mobile application that lets U.S. military veterans access the personal electronic health records stored in their MyHealtheVet account on a mobile device. Called “VA-214,” the app was developed to support the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' Blue Button Web portal. The “blue button” concept centers around the goal of pushing a single button to access and download all health-related information needed.
VA-214 is available on both Apple's iOS and Google's Android platform. The app's developers say that it gives veterans “ready access to personal health information for better understanding of their medical history and [the ability] to partner more effectively with health providers.” The app is accessible to all MyHealtheVet accounts — about 1 million veterans total — and is available for download at www.northropgrumman.com/apps.
