WELL Health now allows patients to safely view and store their available medical records in the Health app on their iPhone with their privacy protected.
The Health Records feature is available within Apple’s Health app, available for download from the App Store. Patients can access Health Records from within the Health app and can download their own health records by selecting “WELL Health” and authenticating with their patient portal username and password.
WELL is the first Canadian company to provide patients with easy access to their medical records.
For the first time patients are empowered with full access and transparency to their health records, allowing them to see a central view of their allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals. It also notifies patients when their data is updated.
Patients’ health history is now at their fingertips. They can connect to participating hospitals and clinics directly from the Apple Health app and be notified when new records are ready to view.
Tech-enabled healthcare is the future of being able to integrate different services in healthcare.
WELL’s new offering is available to over 2,200 healthcare clinics across Canada, which has 10,700 physicians and over 15 million patient records.
“Delivering on patient-centric healthcare and patient enablement is a big part of WELL’s overarching mission and vision. For this reason, we are delighted to be the first telehealth and Canadian EMR platform in Canada to offer Health Records and enable patients to download and view their health information on iPhone,” said Hamed Shahbazi, Chairman and CEO of WELL.
“Providing patients with an easy and convenient method to get access to their available health records right on their iPhone can help them more actively participate in their health, leading to better health outcomes and a higher patient understanding of their own overall health status.”
Over the past 6 months, WELL has entered the US Healthcare Market with the completion of majority stake acquisition of Circle Medical Technologies and it’s acquisition of CRH Medical and concurrent $300 million equity offering led by Mr. Li Ka-Shing.
