Many medical systems offer their own web portals, but the new app can combine the information into one source, according to The Washington Post.
The app will show users their allergies, immunizations, lab results and medications in an easy-to-follow, timeline format that is encrypted and must be accessed by a passcode.
A handful of hospitals, including Johns Hopkins Medicine, Cedars-Sinai and Penn Medicine, are allowing their patients to use the app as a portal to their records as part of the program's introduction.
Hospitals taking part :
- Johns Hopkins Medicine - Baltimore, Maryland
- Cedars-Sinai - Los Angeles, California
- Penn Medicine - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
- Geisinger Health System - Danville, Pennsylvania
- UC San Diego Health - San Diego, California
- UNC Health Care - Chapel Hill, North Carolina
- Rush University Medical Center - Chicago, Illinois
- Dignity Health - Arizona, California and Nevada
- Ochsner Health System - Jefferson Parish, Louisiana
- MedStar Health - Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia
- OhioHealth - Columbus, Ohio
- Cerner Healthe Clinic - Kansas City, Missouri
