Meditech, a provider of healthcare software, has announced that its platform will support the sharing of health data with doctors and hospitals in iOS 15.
The inclusion of Health Records will allow iOS 15 users to securely share health-related data with their healthcare providers. Users will be able to pick what data they want to share with physicians and hospitals.
On the healthcare provider side, physicians will be able to see a user's data within a web-based dashboard without needing to sign in to a separate system.
If a user chooses to, they can share data from iPhone, Apple Watch, and a range of third-party apps or accessories. This could allow medical professionals to monitor and analyze trends or changes over time. Meditech says that its system is built for privacy and security. All data is end-to-end encrypted, and will remain secure after transit.
Along with Meditech, Cerner, Allscripts, AthenaHealth, CPSI, and DrChrono will also support secure sharing when it launches in the fall.
Meditech says that current healthcare providers that use its platform will get further details about enrollment in the coming weeks.
