Bayhealth deploys Apple's Health Records app: 4 notes  

Dover, Del.-based Bayhealth is now offering Apple's Health Records application to patients to streamline access to their available medical data, according to a Dec. 3 news release.

Four notes:

1. Health Records compiles patients' health information, including lab results, medications and procedures, into a single app on iPhone.

2. Apple built Health Records based on Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, which is a standard for EHR data sharing.

3. Before deploying the app, Bayhealth patients' medical records were stored in multiple locations, and patients had to log into each care provider's website to view their respective health data.

"By supporting the Health Records on iPhone feature, we're making it even easier for our patients to access not only their health records with Bayhealth, but their health records with other providers," said Rick Mohnk, CIO at Bayhealth, according to the news release. "It's important for patients to fully understand and advocate for their health. Being able to see all of their health records at their fingertips goes a long way in making that happen."

4. Bayhealth comprises two hospitals as well as various satellite facilities and is home to more than 400 physicians.
