VA Online Site Registers 1 Millionth User
At 1:12 p.m. CST on May 11, five Veterans and one VA employee registered within seconds of each other propelling My HealtheVet to 1 million registrants. These six new users—ranging in age from 25 to 63, residing in Alabama, California, Ohio, Oregon, and Virginia—represent the wide range of users on VA’s award-winning Personal Health record which averages over 19,000 registrants each month. At any given time, registrants can log in, receive access, and validate their status. This milestone highlights how My HealtheVet captures registrant data simultaneously.
Secretary of veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki said, “VA’s health care professionals are dedicated to improving the health of our Veterans and the growth of My HealtheVet shows that the people who know us best—our veterans—are attracted to the quality of VA’s health care system.”
