Health Records on iPhone Available to Doylestown Health Patients

Apple Patient App

Updated 7/29/2021

Doylestown Health supports Health Records on iPhone, which brings together hospitals, clinics and the existing Apple Health app to make it easy for patients to see their available medical data from multiple providers whenever they choose.

Patients who use an iPhone now have convenient access to the data available in the Doylestown Health patient portal.

Previously, patients' medical records were held in multiple locations, requiring patients to log into each care provider's website and piece together the information manually. Apple worked with the healthcare community to take a consumer-friendly approach and created Health Records based on FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources), a standard for transferring electronic medical records.

Patients now have medical information from participating institutions organized into one view, covering allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals, and will receive notifications when their data is updated. Health Records data is encrypted and protected with the user's iPhone passcode, Touch ID or Face ID.

"Doylestown Health is pleased to offer our patients this convenient option when it comes to viewing their health information," said Lynn Miller, director of Applications for Doylestown Health. "We hope patients will make use of this secure technology to stay up to date on their health data and take an active approach to managing their health, all through their iPhone."
