Apple today released an article on how US doctors are equipping their patients with Apple's Health App Records feature. Apple starts with Dr. Harrington. If Dr. Robert Harrington, cardiologist and head of the medical department at Stanford, sees patients often give him stacks of printed medical records and charts, hand-drawn charts, or their smartphone with notes and photos. Occasionally, they enter his office with shopping bags full of medicines to guide him through the details of their care. "People are giving you all sorts of things these days," he says, "and more data is almost never bad, but if they turn up with paper, how do you sum that up?" He hired a capable team to do the Herculean task of pulling everything together. "It's a labor-intensive, very tedious task"
As of today, patients from NYU may include Langone Health, Stanford Medicine, and nearly 40 other health care systems representing hundreds of hospitals and clinics , view their medical records directly from their iPhone. The updated Health Records record in the Health App helps consumers view medical information from various institutions in a view and receive alerts when their data is updated. This information can help patients better understand their health history, talk to doctors and family members, and make future decisions. Health Records data is encrypted and protected with the user's iPhone password.
As a self-proclaimed former downtown hangover, fan of the Boston Red Sox and" Data Guy, "Dr. Harrington says," Whenever you have information in patients and doctors can give "hands and allow to make more informed decisions, that's the best of everything." In a world where patients have more technological access to data than ever before, a platform like Health Records in his words is "an important maneuver for empowering patients and the way the world needs to be".
Years ago, a patient with respiratory problems came to Dr. Paul Testa of the NYU Langone emergency department and showed his The phone provided Dr. Testa with relevant information – such as allergy details – to support patient care. "With this information, I was able to draw conclusions about who my patient was when she could not tell me herself." he says, "Now there is a whole other world on our patients and my phone."
As Senior Medical Information Officer at NYU Langone, Dr. Testa works to improve the digital experience for patients and colleagues who care more about them Power and Better Care Eight generations of his family have practiced as doctors and he is interested in improving family commerce through technology.
When it comes to patients coming to the ER, Dr. Testa: "There is always a mess that will get you there". He points to technologies that help make conversations meaningful. For example, he implemented a new service for emergency physicians through the push notifications of the Apple Watch. Today, 35 physicians can request notifications for important lab results so they can see the results and respond quickly, as well as be notified as their patients progress from arrival to release from the system. He believes that Health Records is "an incredible first step in enabling patients to take their own information", but more importantly, "it shows where we're going to land."
The new Health Records feature was previously available to patients who joined the Apple Beta software program Today, patients from nearly 40 health care facilities listed below can easily view their medical records by updating their iOS software on their iPhone.
