Putting the Power of Data
In the Hands of the People
Medicare is leading the charge on patient-centric data sharing. By turning raw health data from Blue Button into meaningful insights, we are putting control in the hands of seniors and their trusted caregivers.
Blue Button 2.0Blue Button and the Blue Button Logo are registered service marks owned by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) launched the Blue Button 2.0 initiative to provide subscribers with the option of making their personal Medicare medical records fully portable and easily accessible, regardless of where and when care is delivered. Blue Button enables records transfer, but it depends on intermediaries to translate this massive stream of data into understandable information. At HDAI, we are building on our approved Blue Button integration to make managing care easier and more productive, especially for seniors with complex medical needs. Our secure app will generate a clean summary of a patient’s past medical history and allowing Medicare subscribers to share their information with trusted caregivers and clinicians. An individual viewing these summaries will be able to quickly understand what a patient’s greatest risks are, what medications the patient is taking, and what providers he or she has seen. Clinicians viewing the app will be able to spend less time hunting for information and more time focused on making clinical decisions and supporting their patients.
