The Veteran Initiated Electronic Care Coordination (VIECC) project at the North Florida/South Georgia VA Health Care System aims to improve care coordination of Veterans receiving healthcare from civilian providers. This project is part of a larger multi-site national pilot project that trains Veterans to use the VA’s Personal Health Record portal, My HealtheVet, to create a Continuity of Care Document (CCD) that can be shared with their civilian providers. The CCD is a summary of their VA health record and includes information such as medications, immunizations, recent lab results, allergies, and history of procedures and encounters. Patients are asked to share a copy of their CCD with civilian providers through the Web-based platform MyHealthStory (powered by RelayHealth technologies).

MyHealthStory, through CommunityHealth IT, is a secure personal health record for patients and an integrated longitudinal medical record with health information exchange tools for healthcare providers, practices and institutions. Healthcare providers in North Florida and Georgia can learn more about connecting to patients who are Veterans using MyHealthStory by contacting Kendra Siler-Marsiglio at 904-318-5803 or kendrasm@wellflorida.dev.acceleration.net.
