Our team of physicians and technologists has designed iBlueButton® to serve Medicare beneficiaries, Veterans, and Military families, for them to have at all times their medical information in their hands to better manage their healthcare, avoid preventable medical errors and receive safer and more effective care.
iBlueButton has won multiple awards over the years including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Industry Innovation competition for its Blue Button® program. iBlueButton 8.0 is the first native mobile application approved in April 2018 by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services for Americans on Medicare, and can be found on the list of Medicare approved Blue Button apps on the Medicare.gov website (go to Manage Your Health).
For Medicare beneficiaries & their caregivers, iBlueButton lets you automatically login into their MyMedicare.gov account and retrieve their medical claim history, translating individual financial claim data into an organized medical history with useful details. The app organizes your information – with lists of medications, conditions, immunizations & allergies – and a detailed medical history (with physician visits, hospitalizations, tests and procedures, etc.) for you to review, research, annotate, share and print.
iBlueButton can also retrieve MyHealtheVet and TRICARE Blue Button health records, assembling them into an interactive Summary Record.
Importantly, iBlueButton generates safety warnings about your medications and recommended best practices for your conditions.
With the recent publication on Medicare.gov of approved apps, Humetrix is making iBlueButton free for a limited introductory time so users can see its value.
iBlueButton offers these benefits:
BE PREPARED WITH YOUR CRITICAL INFORMATION AWAYS WITH YOU
At the physician’s office or in the emergency room, be prepared with all the information you need securely organized and stored by iBlueButton on your smartphone or tablet. iBlueButton pulls and organizes your Medicare and other records with all critical information in easy to view sections and a detailed medical history. Your medical history is available for you at all times to review, research and annotate because it is stored locally on your mobile device, immediately accessible even if you have no internet connection. iBlueButton also helps you understand obscure medical terminology, and you can also mark sensitive information private to not share it.
PERSONALIZED SAFETY WARNINGS
iBlueButton automatically generates important safety warnings about your medications to help you prevent adverse drug effects, alerting you about highly-addictive opioids and of potentially dangerous drug-drug interactions, or medications which should be avoided if you are over the age of 65. iBlueButton also recommends care guidelines for your specific medical conditions.
LIFE AND COST SAVING
On average, a Medicare beneficiary sees 7 different physicians a year, with most physicians not having the full medical history of their patients, which can cause medical errors, unnecessary tests, and avoidable healthcare expenses. Veterans and military families experience these same healthcare issues, as their care takes place in both VA and private-sector facilities. iBlueButton helps you prevent dangerous medical errors by having with you, anytime and anywhere, your critical medical history.
SECURE AND PRIVATE, UNDER YOUR CONTROL
Unlike most personal health applications, iBlueButton only stores your information on your own mobile device, where it is securely encrypted. Under your control, your personal health information is retrieved by your app from the data source (e.g., Medicare) and goes directly on your mobile device. None of your data is processed or stored in the cloud or seen by Humetrix; you do not create an account with us. Your information remains yours, with no risk of tampering or hacking in the cloud. Humetrix doesn’t share or sell your personal information.
