VA Appointments Summary
The My HealtheVet Personal Health Record (PHR) provides a method for you to view the details of your appointment records from a VA facility. The VA Appointments Summary page displays a list of your VA appointments. It displays the past 2 years of your VA appointments and all of your upcoming VA appointments.
Yellow Information Box: this may be displayed at the top of the page. It lets you know that updates to your information may be in progress. When you see this:
VA Appointments Personal Health Record: Displays the name of the person that logged into My HealtheVet. It also tells you the date and time your VA Appointment information was last updated.
VA Appointments Summary:
Displays a list of your upcoming VA appointments, the date/time of the appointment, the status of the appointment (e.g., active, cancelled, etc.) the clinic name and the location.
IMPORTANT: If the clinic name starts with NON VA CARE, the appointment location is not at the VA Medical Center that is displayed. You will need to contact your appointment scheduling office, to find the location of the NON VA CARE appointment.
The columns listed for Appointment Date/Time, Status, Clinic, and Location can be sorted in ascending or descending order. To sort a column, select the up and/or down triangle ().
To view details about a specific appointment, under Clinic, select the Clinic name.
Status: Future appointments will have a status of either Active or Cancelled. It is always good to check the status of your VA Appointments before your clinic visit.
# Items found, displaying 1 to 10
Displays the total number of appointments found. The page is set up to display between 1-10 appointments. If there are more than 10 rows of appointments, the appointment list moves to page 2.
Lets you know what page of appointments you are viewing. You can also select where you want to go, such as page 2, Next or Last. If you are on page 1, you can select 2 or select Next.
Note: 1-10 appointments are on page one. If you have 10 or less you cannot select another page because there is no information to see.
This allows you view as many rows as you would like to see listed on your VA Appointment Summary page. You can select more than 10. To do this, click on the down arrow to select the desired number. For example, if you want to view at least 25 appointments on one page, select that number:
Number of rows to display per page: 10 25 50 100
Note: If you select 25, it will only show the number of future appointments. If you only have 10 appointments but selected 25, you will only see 10.
