Apple today announced that its partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to roll out access to the Health Records feature for iPhone has launched, with veterans who receive care through the VA now able to access their information right in the Health app on iOS.

“Helping veterans gain a better understanding of their health is our chance to show our gratitude for their service,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “By working with the VA to offer Health Records on iPhone, we hope to help those who served have greater peace of mind that their health care is in good hands.”

Apple announced the initiative back in February, but it's taken a number of months to get everything in place to launch it to country's largest medical system covering over 9 million veterans at over 1,200 medical facilities.

Looked at the Apps store and was unable to find the apple/VA app. Any clue? Thanks in advance
You don't need to install an app, it uses the Health app that comes with iOS.

I have been waiting for it. Will check it out now.


EDIT: Took me all of two minutes to log in and pull my record. Pretty cool.

Yes, sign in through the Health app. It takes some effort, but once the verification part is done, it works.
I can see my records, but not every detail.
I guess the effort depends on what you have already had established. I already have a MyHealthyVet login so it was litterally two clicks and a sign in.

This is awesome. I haven't connected any of my other records to Health yet. Connected VA and it shows all my visits and information taken from those visits. Cool.

I had to setup a new MyHealtheVet account. I hadn't even been to the VA since the early 2000's.
