About Paralyzed Veterans of America:
Paralyzed Veterans of America is the only congressionally chartered veterans service organization dedicated solely for the benefit and representation of veterans with spinal cord injury or disease. For nearly 70 years, we have ensured that veterans have received the benefits earned through their service to our nation; monitored their care in VA spinal cord injury units; and funded research and education in the search for a cure and improved care for individuals with paralysis.
As a partner for life, Paralyzed Veterans also develops training and career services, works to ensure accessibility in public buildings and spaces, provides health and rehabilitation opportunities through sports and recreation and advocates for veterans and all people with disabilities. With more than 70 offices and 34 chapters, Paralyzed Veterans serves veterans, their families and their caregivers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. (www.pva.org)

New Website Allows Veterans to Review VA FacilitiesPosted: Wed 9:49 AM, Aug 12, 2015By: WOWT 6 News


VetFriends.com, the largest Website reuniting U.S. military veterans, has launched a nationwide online database of VA Hospitals with ratings and reviews at https://www.VAratings.com. The goal of the site is to allow veterans to share their experiences, rate their local VA hospitals and clinics and to help improve and provide awareness to Veterans Affairs facilities nationwide.VAratings.com provides a free ratings/review system with a directory of all VA Hospitals, Outpatient Clinics, Veteran Centers, National Cemeteries and Intake Centers. The rating system consists of a 5 star rating process with questions about a veteran’s visit that deal with Department, Ease of scheduling, Wait times, Treatment quality, Staff’s quality of care and more. A comment section is also available where veterans can add more information and others visitors can respond directly to posts.VAratings.com was created to provide objective reviews of services provided by the VA from U.S. veterans and their families. It is important for veterans to know that their VA facility has the highest quality of care and expertise. VAratings.com is a platform for information to be exchanged, questions asked and unbiased reviews are posted.Each month a topic will be spotlighted in the awareness campaign featuring a specific health issue. The topic covered will coincide with the national awareness months such as Breast Cancer Awareness in October and American Diabetes Month in November. Additional resources include information on how veterans can obtain VA Benefits, along with a library of VA forms. Furthermore, health topics and articles address illnesses, new treatments and discoveries, along with healthy lifestyle tips plus a variety of others.

  Simplify Your Healthcare: VLER Health Exchange

Many Veterans receive a portion of their care from non-VA health care providers. Sharing certain parts of your Electronic Health Record (EHR) will help reduce the need for you or your family to carry records between health care providers. This also allows your non-VA health care provider to make more informed decisions about your care. In an emergency, immediate access to additional health care information could save your life. Electronic sharing of your EHR makes it easier to share your current medications with your doctors and helps eliminate unnecessary medical tests.

Participation is entirely free and voluntary. Deciding not to participate will not affect your VA Health benefits or your relationship with your doctor and/or the VA Health Care System. To learn more about CONNECT YOUR DOCS and sharing your health care records, please visit www.va.gov/VLER
