Edit Test Information (self-entered)
There are two ways to access the Edit Test Information (self-entered) page. You can select the pencil icon from the View Test Information (self-entered) page or select the Edit button, on the View Test Information (self-entered) page.
On the Edit Test Information (self-entered) page, you can edit all the information you previously entered. You cannot edit any test information from your VA electronic health record.
The input fields for self-entered tests are described below. Some of these fields are required and some are optional. The required fields are indicated by an asterisk symbol (*).
You must select the Save button for your changes to be recorded. If you select Cancel, any changes you made will not be saved. After you select Save or Cancel you will be taken back to the View Test Information (self-entered) screen. The Reset button will return the fields to the original values before any changes were made. If for some reason the system is not able to process your entry, the page will refresh with a message explaining what must be done to proceed.
