Allscripts announced that Apple Health Records is now available for Allscripts Sunrise™, TouchWorks®, and Professional EHR™ clients and their consumers. Health Records brings together hospitals, clinics, and the existing Apple Health app to make it easy for individuals to see their available health data from multiple provider organizations whenever they choose. Health Records is available for iPhone users running iOS 11.3 or higher. This latest offering is an addition to Allscripts’ robust consumer engagement offering, which includes Allscripts FollowMyHealth®, the electronic health record (EHR)-neutral cornerstone of the Allscripts consumer engagement solution.
Previously, an individual’s health information was held in multiple locations, requiring consumers to log in to each care provider organization’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 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), a standard for transferring electronic medical records.
Now, individuals 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. Sharp HealthCare, Think Whole Person Healthcare, UT Physicians, Blessing Health System, Erie County Medical Center, Sarasota Memorial Health Care System, and Digestive Disease Associates are among the health care organizations that have participated in early testing.
Allscripts is a leader in health care information technology solutions that advance clinical, financial, and operational results. The innovative solutions connect people, places, and data across an Open, Connected Community of Health™. Connectivity empowers caregivers and consumers to make better decisions, delivering better care for healthier populations.
