Virtual Education Center

The Virtual Education Center is a MHS-approved source of health and wellness information that allows patients to access to more than 50,000 education materials covering over 60 medical topics to research their symptoms and prepare for their appointments. Health care providers can send case-specific medical information directly to patients by email. Patients can research medical conditions, ways to stay healthy, and develop their own personal dashboard from any device (mobile, laptop, desktop, tablet, etc.) with an internet connection.

After logging in, patients have access to training materials, including How-to-Videos, informational slides and step-by-step instructions. Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, was the first MHS facility providing access to the VEC to patients. The VEC will be available at all MHS hospitals and clinics by 2025. This initiative supports the DHA Market Implementation Plan by providing its 9.5 million patients with a validated educational resource.
