If you are a member of a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) care team, the Patient Viewer, Version 3 mobile application (app) will allow you to find information quickly from patients’ Electronic Health Records (EHRs) from the convenience of a mobile device. The app will help you have a thorough understanding of a patient’s health and gain immediate access to EHR data – both in your VA facility and on the go.

This app is designed for use with VA Mobile tablets. If you have not used your device lately and need help with it, contact the VA Mobile Help Desk 24/7 via web at http://help.vamobile.us, emailing help@vamobile.us, or by calling 844-4VA-MOBILE, (844-482-6624), 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. (CT).
