Health Records on iPhone Now Available to Hudson Physicians Patients

Hudson Physicians offers a simple and secure way to access your medical data.

Hudson Physician’s 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.

Previously, patients’ medical records were held in multiple locations, requiring them 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.

The entire team at Hudson Physicians is excited to be working with Apple to make access to secure medical records from an iPhone as easy as checking email. The Apple Health app complements our patient portal and can provide more productive doctors’ visits as well as help people manage their wellness goals.
