Description: Joint Longitudinal Viewer (JLV) is the VistAWeb replacement for electronic health record (EHR) chart review and allows access to complete health records from VA and DoD legacy and modern systems. JLV is beneficial to multiple applications of research, especially as more VHA sites transition to the new EHR, Oracle-Cerner. This session is the first of a two-part series describing what is needed to begin using JLV for research, including an interactive presentation on setting up a JLV workspace for basic research tasks. Additionally, this seminar highlight the updates that have been made to JLV over the last year. The audience will learn the purpose of JLV, how to request research access, and how to effectively use a workspace for research purposes. This session is appropriate for users new to JLV. Those interested in more advanced JLV techniques should register for part 2: Applications for Joint Longitudinal Viewer (JLV) in Research: Day to Day Uses.
