Apple Health partners with Allscripts

Apple Health Records is now available to Allscripts Sunrise, TouchWorks and Professional EHR clients and their patients, according to an Aug. 22 news release

Apple’s Health Records allows patients with iPhones to access their medical histories through their phones. Apple has spent years working with the healthcare industry to design a platform that is user-friendly. Health Records was based on Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, a standard for transferring electronic medical records. 

Allscripts’ clients that have participated in early testing include Sharp HealthCare, Think Whole Person Healthcare, UT Physicians, Blessing Health System, Erie County Medical Center, Sarasota Memorial Healthcare System and Digestive Disease Associates. 

“With Health Records on iPhone, patients can become more active members of their own care team,” said Allscripts CEO Paul Black. “Health Records on iPhone empowers individuals to direct how their own health data is stored and used. We are proud to offer this and other FHIR-connected applications for our clients and their patients.”
