Health Records on iPhone Now Available to Cone Health Patients
Cone Health offers a simple and secure way to access your medical data.
Cone Health now supports Health Records on iPhone®. This brings the health information of patients at Cone Health hospitals, clinics and physician practices into the existing Apple Health app making it easy for patients to see their available medical data from multiple providers whenever they choose.
Patients can already access their Cone Health medical records through the MyChart app and will need to have a MyChart account to use Health Records. Patients can go to ConeHealth.com and click “MyChart” at the top to obtain an account and then enjoy the convenience of using Health Records on iPhone.
Previously, patients’ with medical records from different health care organizations had to log into each provider’s website and piece together the information manually. Apple® worked with the health care 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 want people to take charge of their health. Our patients want to take charge of their health,” says Dr. Valerie Leschber, chief medical information officer, Cone Health. “Literally putting their health history into a patient’s hands, will go a long way toward making that happen.”
