What is a BLUEBUTTON file?

A BLUEBUTTON file is a data file created by VA Blue Button, a web tool that allows U.S. veterans to manage their health records. It contains a patient's complete personal health information recorded at a VA medical facility. BLUEBUTTON files include test results, allergies, medical treatment from doctors and hospital visits, prescribed medications, and health insurance claims information.

More Information

The BLUEBUTTON file is created by VA Blue Button when a patient downloads his medical information from the VA Blue Button website. The file can be shared with others caring for the patient, such as a family member, doctor, or other caregiver.

NOTE: In 2015, the BLUEBUTTON format was discontinued. VA Blue Button replaced the BLUEBUTTON file with .TXT and .PDF files.
