The Mayo Clinic also stresses that privacy is at the forefront of the Health Records implementation. “Use of Health Records in iPhone’s Health app is optional and will not change or affect the user’s Patient Online Services account,” the company says. “There are more ways than ever for patients to be actively engaged in their health care, and smartphone apps can be helpful for accessing records and tracking daily fitness and diet,” says Steve Ommen, M.D., medical director of Experience Products for Mayo Clinic’s Center for Digital Health. “We want patients who are interested in these apps to be able to use them securely and enhance their health care at Mayo Clinic.”
Health Records protects patients’ privacy by using an encrypted connection between the user’s iPhone and health care organizations. Downloaded health records are stored on the user’s device and encrypted with the user’s passcode. Users access their Mayo Clinic health records by authenticating with their Patient Online Services username and password. Health Records is available on iPhones but not iPads. The Mayo Clinic made the announcement in a press release.
