Health Records on iPhone Now Available to Sansum Clinic Patients
Health Records on iPhone Now Available to Sansum Clinic Patients - Sansum Clinic offers a simple and secure way to access your medical data
Sansum Clinic now supports Health Records on iPhone, which brings together hospitals, clinics and the existing Apple Health app to make it easy for patients to see their available medical data from multiple providers whenever they choose.
Sansum Clinic has more than 70,000 patients active on MyChart and this feature will be available to all of those whom use iPhones and receive care at any of our 22 patient care facilities.
Previously, patients’ medical records were held in multiple locations, requiring patients to log into each care provider’s website and piece together the information manually. Apple worked with the healthcare community to take a consumer-friendly approach and created Health Records based on FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources), a standard for transferring electronic medical records.
Now, patients will have medical information from participating institutions organized into one view, covering allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals, and will receive notifications when their data is updated. Health Records data is encrypted and protected with the user’s iPhone passcode, Touch ID or Face ID.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide our patients who are active on MyChart with access to their records in the Apple Health app, so they can view their own personal health data from all participating health institutions in one place,” said Sean Johnson, MPH, BSN, RN, Vice President of Applications and Analytics at Sansum Clinic.
