Empower your patients with Health Records on iPhone.

The Health app makes it easier than ever for users to visualise and securely store their health records. Now your patients can aggregate their health records from multiple institutions alongside their patient-generated data, creating a more holistic view of their health.

Put your patients at the centre of care.

Enabling your patients to get their health records on iPhone can help them more actively participate in their health and help drive overall awareness of your patient portal.

Engage your patients in their own health.

When your patients have their medical information organised into one view right on their iPhone, it can help them better understand their overall health and provide key elements of their medical history when visiting a new doctor.

Adding verifiable health records to the Health app.

If a vaccine provider or health system supports the SMART Health Cards specification, it can allow your patients to store verifiable COVID‑19 vaccination or test result records in the Health app. Your patients can add these records by downloading a file or scanning a QR code, so they can easily access them at any time. Verifiable COVID‑19 vaccination information can also be added as a vaccination card to Wallet.

Complement your patient portal.

Connecting to the Health app has the potential to drive additional awareness and adoption of your patient portal and other services you offer because authentication through the Health app uses the same patient login credentials supported by your organisation.

From your EHR to their iPhone, in a few simple steps.

We’ve worked closely with multiple Electronic Health Record (EHR) vendors and others in the healthcare community to make it easy for you to enable this feature.

Built with industry standards.

The connection between your EHR and a user’s Health app utilises FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) standard APIs as defined by the Argonaut Project. Supported data types are allergies, conditions, immunisations, test results, medication, procedures and vitals.

Designed to protect privacy.

Apple is providing a user with the ability to request and download their health records utilising a direct, encrypted connection between the user’s iPhone and the APIs provided by the health system or clinic. As part of this feature, Apple is not creating, receiving, maintaining or transmitting personal health information for or on behalf of health systems or their business partners.

Encrypted and secure throughout.

When health record data is transferred from a healthcare institution to the Health app, it is encrypted and does not traverse Apple’s network. When a user’s iPhone is locked with a passcode, Touch ID or Face ID, their health data in the Health app is encrypted on-device. If a user chooses to sync their health data with iCloud, it is encrypted while in transit and at rest.

Creates a seamless connection.

The connection leverages OAuth 2.0, which allows users to authenticate once and create an enduring connection to your EHR APIs. The Health app will periodically connect to your EHR APIs to pull in any new health records and notify the user when new records are available.

Get started today.

Please check first with your EHR contact to determine how to prepare your institution to register with Apple. Apple does not charge institutions any fees for registration or to maintain a connection.

Registration is available to healthcare institutions in Canada, the UK and the US only.
