Centura Health offers a simple and secure way to access your medical data
Centura Health, the region’s health care leader, now supports Health Records on iPhone, which brings together Centura Health hospitals, Colorado Health Neighborhoods, ER and Urgent Care Centers, and the existing Apple health app to make it easy for patients to see their available medical data from multiple providers whenever they choose.
Centura Health connects individuals, families, and neighborhoods across Colorado and western Kansas with more than 6,000 physicians and 21,000 of the best hearts and minds in health care.
Previously, patients’ medical records were held in multiple locations, requiring patients to log in to 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 are encrypted and protected with the user’s iPhone passcode.
“As a health partner for life, Centura Health wants to capture complete health information and simplify it for our patients as they engage with our caregivers,” said Brian Erling, senior vice president. “Health Records on iPhone aggregates health data for better conversations, better treatments and better outcomes.”
