Works with Apple Health app offers a simple and secure way to access your medical data
Auburn, NE (May 17, 2019) – Nemaha County Hospital announced today that it 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.
Patients will now be able to easily access and visualize their health records in the Health app on iPhone in a simple, aggregated timeline view. Setup is simple and getting the health records from Nemaha County Hospital into an iPhone is secure and as easy as going to the Health Records section of the Health app, searching for the institution, and logging in. After you log in once, your health records will start to appear in the Health app, and you will be notified when new records are ready to view.
“We are excited to be able to offer this convenient service to our patients,” said Marty Fattig,
Chief Executive Office. “Our patients are important to us and allowing them to access all their health information in one secure location will give them a better experience.”
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.
