Posted on: Thursday, October 3, 2019 By: KorchekStaff
Meditech announced Oct. 3 that it is now offering its Expanse and 6.0 EHR clients access to Apple Health Records.
Meditech customers Grand View Health in Sellersville, Pa., Hancock Regional Hospital in Greenfield, Ind., and Doylestown (Pa.) Hospital are the EHR vendor's first clients to roll out the feature.
Apple's Health Records application allows patients with iPhones to view their medical records directly through their phones. The technology giant worked with the healthcare community to develop a consumer-friendly approach to Health Records, building the app off Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, the standard for transferring EHRs.
Meditech plans to extend access to Apple Health Records across all its EHR platforms but is beginning with 6.0 and Expanse. By partnering with Apple, patients who use a Meditech EHR will be able to access their health data from multiple providers from a single platform.
"With health information from Meditech now available via Health Records on iPhone, consumers are provided one convenient, comprehensive record, enabling them to take a more proactive role in managing their own wellness," said Howard Messing, Meditech CEO, according to the news release.
