Blue Button ®

Blue Button was developed by the United States Department of Veteran Affairs in collaboration with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Department of Defense, and the Markle Foundation's Consumer Engagement Workgroup. It was designed to enhance veterans' access to their personal health information, encourage patient engagement and support patient-centered care.
