California HIE Pilot to Use iBlueButton for Mobile Health Records

The State of California Office of Health Information Integrity has chosen iBlueButton for a health information exchange pilot program designed to allow patients to view, download and share their medical records on a mobile device.

Conducted in partnership with the National Association for Trusted Exchange, the pilot program will allow patients whose providers participate in the San Diego Regional Health Information Exchange to see their medical records on their smartphones.

"Exploring how a common trust framework can be leveraged to make it easier for patients using Direct-enabled PHRs, like iBlueButton, to get engaged in their care will better enable NATE and the nation to move forward on meaningful exchange between patients and their providers," said Aaron Seib, the pilot's program director and CEO of NATE, in the news release.
