Our team of physicians and technologists has designed iBlueButton to serve Medicare beneficiaries, Veterans, and Military families, for them to have at all times their medical history in their hands, enriched with personalized medical care guidance and important health safety warnings. iBlueButton will help you better manage your healthcare, avoid preventable medical errors, and avoid unnecessary care.
iBlueButton has won multiple awards over the years including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Industry Innovation competition for its Blue Button program. iBlueButton is the first Medicare approved native mobile Blue Button application, and you can find the app listed on the Medicare.gov website (go to Manage Your Health).
For Medicare beneficiaries & their family caregivers, iBlueButton lets you automatically login into their MyMedicare.gov account to retrieve their medical claim history which is then automatically translated into an organized medical history with lists of medications, conditions, immunizations & allergies – and a detailed medical history (with physician visits, hospitalizations, tests and procedures, etc.) for you to review, research, annotate, share and print.
iBlueButton can also retrieve VA and TRICARE Blue Button records, as well as Apple Health App records, assembling all of them into its Summary Record.
Importantly, iBlueButton generates safety warnings about your medications and recommended best practices for your medical conditions.
iBlueButton offers these benefits:
- BE PREPARED WITH YOUR CRITICAL INFORMATION ALWAYS WITH YOU
At the physician’s office or in the emergency room, be prepared with all the information you need securely organized and stored by iBlueButton on your smartphone or tablet. iBlueButton pulls and organizes your Medicare and other records with all critical information in easy to view sections. Your medical history is available for you at all times to review, research, understand medical terminology, annotate, and select the specific information you want to share.
- PERSONALIZED SAFETY WARNINGS
iBlueButton automatically generates important safety warnings about your medications to help you prevent adverse drug effects, alerting you about highly-addictive opioids and of potentially dangerous drug-drug interactions, or medications which should be avoided if you are over the age of 65. iBlueButton also provides professionally recommended medical care guidelines for common chronic conditions.
- LIFE AND COST SAVING
On average, a Medicare beneficiary sees seven different physicians a year, with most physicians not having the full medical history of their patients, which can cause medical errors, unnecessary tests, and avoidable healthcare expenses. Veterans and military families experience these same healthcare issues, as their care takes place in both VA and private-sector facilities. iBlueButton helps you prevent dangerous medical errors by having with you, anytime and anywhere, your critical medical history.
- SECURE AND PRIVATE, UNDER YOUR CONTROL
Unlike most personal health applications, iBlueButton only stores your information securely on your own mobile device, under your control, and not in the cloud. Your information remains yours, with no risk of tampering or hacking in the cloud. Humetrix doesn’t share or sell your personal information.
iBlueButton Service Subscription:
iBlueButton is offered with two subscription choices of either 1-month or 1-year to receive ongoing safety warnings with your periodically updated Medicare record. After a 1-month free trial, payment for the Service Subscription of your choice will be charged to your Apple ID account unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the trial. The Subscription automatically renews unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your account settings on the App Store after purchase.
Integration with the Apple Health App for access and aggregation of a user's health record medication and condition data.
Ratings and Reviews
Keeps all the easily overlooked details in order
This app has been a massive help—my mother (who’s on Medicare) has been dealing with chronic health issues, which means lots of doctors and lots of medications. I live out of state, which makes it extremely difficult for me to keep track of what’s going on; iBlueButton keeps all of her doctors’ contact info in one place, should a crisis situation occur. Plus, it keeps all her meds listed in a format she can show to a new specialist, to make sure she’s not given anything that will react poorly with the meds she’s already on. (For new users—the app also reviews the list of current medications, to see if any might be causing adverse reactions and complicating treatment.)
Having a sick parent is hard no matter what, but it’s much easier to deal with when you’re not having to prompt them for details they’d rather not think about.
Critical for your health
This app downloads my Medicare claim data and presents its analysis of all my aggregated conditions and medications. Medical history and information about each of 8 physicians and many other providers in a user-friendly display. When applicable, care guidelines for best practices are indicated for individual conditions and medication safety warnings are also flagged. This helps to focus my limited time during a visit to ask the important questions of my physicians. This is an essential app for Medicare patients.
Lightning Speed and User Friendly
Such a great app to have to best manage your medical care! All the medical information is organized in an easy way to find and research. I really like the new medication safety warnings which now come with it. A must have for those on the go and more than one Doctor. In an emergency, my medical records can be accessed immediately.
