My Military Health Records
You should keep copies of your medical documentation, records, and health care history information for your own reference.
- If you get most care at military hospitals or clinics, you’ll have a DoD electronic health record.
- If you retired or separated after Jan. 1, 2014, paper copies of your Service Treatment Records (STRs) were digitized following your retirement or separation from the Armed Forces. If your STRs don’t contain information classified as sensitive, they’ll be available via your Patient Portal, either TRICARE Online or MHS GENESIS.
- Civilian providers may keep paper records or use a private electronic health record system.

The jHIE is now available at several sites around the U.S. allowing some of the information in your military electronic health record to be securely shared between the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, and participating federal and civilian health care partners through the national eHealth Exchange.
Sharing your health information can save time and improve your care when you visit eHealth Exchange providers, including Veterans Affairs hospitals. >>Learn More.
