VA View Alerts This option is used to select alerts or notifications produced by application packages for viewing or to perform any actions associated with the alert or notification received e.g., discharge summary’s, operative reports. Continue The 'Continue' option is similar to 'Halt' in that it allows a user to exit without having to back up through the tree of menus. Halting with 'Continue' will cause the computer to remember what the last option being executed was, and next time the user signs on, there will be the choice of resuming processing at that option.
