Politico reports that health IT company Iatric Systems, Inc. has announced its integration with Apple Health to pull patient data into HealthKit and present it from inpatient, ambulatory and patient-generated sources. The "EHR-neutral" approach will link data from records, physician practices and other health IT software, according to an announcement from Iatric. Iatric envisions that patients will help hospitals with meaningful use requirements--especially view, download and transmit.
Two hospitals are currently using Iatric for integration with Apple Health - Michigan's Memorial Healthcare and King's Daughters Medical Center in Mississippi. "We envision our patients using Apple Health easily because for many, the iPhone is already a main part of their lives, said Frank Fear, CIO at Memorial Healthcare, in the announcement. "We could have integrated Apple Health within a portal from our EHR vendor or ambulatory system vendor, but data from disparate systems sits in silos. Iatric Systems was a natural fit because their portal integrates across all of our systems, giving us one tool for capturing and sending data to patients, and eventually, receiving data back from them."
