The Veterans' Affairs Center in Muskogee is hoping to make the medical system more convenient and helpful for veterans.

They've launched an entire office dedicated to My HealtheVet, a free one-stop shop veterans can access there or anywhere.

Tuesday, the center set up computer kiosks and free Internet access to make using My HealtheVet even easier.

Veterans can use the website to refill prescriptions, view lab results, and communicate with their doctors and nurses directly.

"Calling in is still an option, but we feel that this will be a little bit more efficient, and a little bit more information, and especially our younger veterans, who are used to communicating electronically. This will be a better system for them," said associate director Bryan Matthews.

Matthews said they've already signed up over 13,000 Oklahoma veterans for the system.
