DrChrono’s Open FHIR API Enables Patients to Transfer Records to Apple Health

What You Should Know:

DrChrono announces today that its open FHIR API is now live enabling its patient members to securely transfer their available health records out of DrChrono into the Apple Health app on the iPhone so their medical information is consolidated and always with them.

– The Health Records feature is part of the Health app, which also shows activity, heart rate, nutrition and other health data consolidated from iPhone, Apple Watch and HealthKit-enabled third-party apps.

– Separate from integrating with Health Records on iPhone, DrChrono’s open FHIR API also allows patients to choose to share their medical records with research institutes and other parties, opening the possibility for researchers to do meaningful medical research, for example with COVID-19 and its effects on a patient’s current diseases, based on all the patient medical records coming from FHIR.
