The Department of Veterans Affairs will update core functions and add new features to a cloud-based portal that stores veterans’ personal medical records, Federal Times reported Monday.

Rutrell Yasin writes the MyHealtheVet platform was introduced by VA in 2003 to help veterans view clinical notes, use secure messaging services to communicate with health providers and do online-based prescription refills.

The redesign effort includes work on the portal’s scheduling function, new dashboard views and plans to expand its use through in-facility kiosks, desktop and mobile platforms, Yasin reports.

“My focus for the last year has been to turn attention to engaging our healthcare professionals so as patients use this online portal capability, we do it in a way that is clinically integrated,” said Kim Nazi, a senior analyst with the agency’s Veterans and Consumer Health Informatics division.
