The last time I visited my family doctor, I enrolled in a new online health records system. Now, from my laptop or smartphone, I can access medical records — reaching back more than a decade across several different physicians and specialties — for my entire family. I also can make appointments, refill prescriptions and ask questions via my personal health records page.
For a patient like me, it’s relevant information wrapped up in a simple, accessible tool that makes my life easier. But it didn’t happen on its own. And I know a great deal of planning, customizing and collaboration went into executing this particular solution for this particular healthcare organization.
For my physician’s practice and my health insurance network, it’s healthcare innovation at work.
