iBlueButton® is the mobile embodiment of Blue Button®, a Federal initiative adopted nationwide to give Americans easy access to their medical information online.
Blue Button is a Federal initiative originally launched in 2010 by the Veterans Administration (VA), the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) that has since expanded nationwide to both public and private health record data holders (health plans, provider systems, pharmacy chains, etc…). The goal of the Blue Button Initiative is to make it easy for consumers to access their health records online – otherwise called Blue Button records, and share them with their healthcare providers, when needed. To learn more about Blue Button, see the Blue Button webpage HERE and the Blue Button Pledge webpage HERE.
iBlueButton is the mobile embodiment of the Blue Button initiative to enable patients to easily access and share their health records with their physicians, anywhere and anytime. A set of mobile apps working in tandem –one for consumers and one for healthcare providers, iBlueButton gives consumers easy, real-time and anywhere access to their Blue Button and other health records, and the ability to securely transmit these records to the healthcare provider they visit, directly from their mobile devices.
