Blue Button Extensions: Medical Imaging



A VAi2 Blue Button Medical Imaging interactive prototype using VA-authorized sample data to demonstrate the extended Blue Button medical imaging features of MyHealtheVet (MHV) in two (2) incremental stages:

  1. A single use-case solution to demonstrate a simple and intuitive processes for the Veteran to interact with VA for selecting and downloading chest x-ray low-resolution reference images utilizing the MyHealtheVet web portal. The solution provides the Veteran the functionality to access, view, and download these medical images to a local or external storage medium (e.g. USB).
  2. Building upon stage 1 to provide a full-capability solution which will demonstrate the Veteran’s capability to select and securely share their VA chest x-ray images and accompanying radiology reports with external caregivers via e-mail through the MHV direct secure messaging service.
