The new My HealtheVet calendar has a much improved look and feel and establishes a framework for new functions. National events will now appear in the calendar, and VA representatives will be able to enter regional and local events.
Future additions will allow for extracts of appointments from VistA, Rx Refill medication reminders, and the ability to schedule VA appointments.
