Description

Our team of physicians and technologists has designed iBlueButton to specifically serve Medicare beneficiaries, Veterans, individuals covered by Tricare and their family caregivers, to have with them at all times their medical information in their hands so that they can better manage their healthcare. iBlueButton won the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Industry Innovation competition for Blue Button, a federal initiative giving Veterans and Americans covered by Medicare or Tricare the ability to download their health records from patient portals offered by these federal programs.

For Medicare beneficiaries and their caregivers, iBlueButton lets you automatically login into your account at MyMedicare.gov and retrieve your medical history over the last three years to your phone or tablet. iBlueButton organizes all your information with lists of medications and diagnoses which you can research and annotate. Find all your physician visits, hospitalizations, tests or get the contact information of all your providers. iBlueButton also works with the MyHealtheVet and Tricare portals to retrieve your Blue Button health records the VA and the Military Health System.

iBlueButton enables you to easily pull, assemble, annotate, research and securely store your health records directly on your mobile devices so that your most critical health information is available at any time. A multi-profile application, iBlueButton lets you manage your own health records and that of your loved ones who you are helping manage their care.

• Life and Cost Saving - On average every year, a Medicare beneficiary sees seven different physicians in four different locations, and most of the time anyone of these physicians don’t have a view of the full medical history of their patients, which can be the cause of medical errors, unnecessary tests, and avoidable healthcare expenses. Veterans and military personnel & their families experience the same healthcare issues, as their care takes place in VA / military health facilities, and the private sector. iBlueButton helps you prevent dangerous medical errors by delivering anytime-anywhere access to your list of current medications, diagnoses, and medical history, along with contact information for your physicians and family caregivers. iBlueButton reduces unnecessary costly or redundant tests, imaging services, and procedures by sharing your past tests and procedures with your doctors.

• All in Your Hands - iBlueButton pulls and organizes all records in a Summary Record, with all critical information in easy to view sections for medications, conditions, immunizations and allergies.

• You in Control - iBlueButton gives you control over your health records or that of your loved ones. With iBlueButton you can look up, research, and annotate medications and side effects, understand obscure medical terminology, and be informed to effectively manage your family’s healthcare with your physicians. With the tap of a button, you can also note medical record errors or mark sensitive information as private that you may not want to share with some providers.

• Secure and Private - Unlike most personal health record applications, iBlueButton stores your information on your own personal device, where it is securely encrypted and unlocked only by you via password or biometric access. None of your data is processed or stored in the cloud or seen by Humetrix as you do not create an account with us. Your health information remains privately kept by you on your device, with no risk of tampering or hacking in the cloud.

• EMR Records via Direct - Automatically receive your summary health records from providers using federally certified EMRs (e.g., Cerner) via the secure Direct protocol. iBlueButton automatically generates Direct addresses for you to give to your physician for you to receive your health record in iBlueButton. Humetrix is committed to secure EMR records access, including via emerging FHIR APIs.

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.
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.

Worthless

Microtechs

This app is worthless for personal medical history. It doesn’t store near enough information to make it worth $0.99 let alone a whopping $15. You can’t add when you started or stopped medication. There’s no place for dates of anything. There’s really no place for previous surgeries, dates and notes about the procedures and outcome. You can download from just a few sources if by chance your physician happens to subscribe to the service.
Wasted my money. You’d be better off spending the money trying out 4 or 5 other apps that at least have fields to input data that you really need when you see a doctor or go to a hospital and they need your medical history when your in severe pain or have to remember years back.

Developer Response

Hi Microtechs -- Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to write this review. We apologize that you did not have a better experience with iBlueButton. iBlueButton is primarily designed to access and acquire your medical records from source systems -- such as Medicare, VA and TRICARE -- as well as receiving medical records from providers' EMR (electronic medical records) systems over the Direct messaging standard. If you acquire your records via these methods, you will see lots of rich and detailed information, and this will only get better and better as health-records liberation continues. For the self entry we focused our medications, diagnoses, allergies and immunizations where we can provide you with useful listings. Feel free to contact our support line at 888-746-7203 if you would like to discuss this matter further.
