Health Records on iPhone Now Available to CCMH’s Patients
October 04, 2018
CCMH offers a simple and secure way to access your medical data
CARROLLTON, Mo. – Carroll County Memorial Hospital 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.
Patients that have already signed up with Carroll County Memorial Hospital’s patient portal will be able to view their available medical record information in the Apple Health app. Medical record data from both Carroll County Memorial Hospital and Jefferson Medical Group will be available in the Health app once a patient signs in with their username and password from the patient portal.
If a patient has not previously signed up for the patient portal, please contact us at 660-542-1695. Individuals can ask for an invitation, or an e-mail can be provided during a visit, and a patient portal invitation will be generated that will allow access to the patient portal.
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.
“Health Records will give patients instant access to their own medical record information and allow them to use this data to make informed healthcare decisions,” Amy Ireland, CCMH Chief Revenue Officer, said. “Carroll County Memorial Hospital is leading the way for rural healthcare through this offering and will continue to bring forth technologies that will allow patients to have the necessary tools for their healthcare needs.”
