With one click of the “Blue Button,” an individual can download all the data that a healthcare organization has about them. Blue Button empowers individuals to download and review their health data, easily share their health data with third parties, and track their progress. What began as a way for Veterans to download health data grew to include all Medicare beneficiaries and has now catalyzed a movement for private companies to provide similar access to health data. Amida’s founding team co-conceived and led the design, implementation, and production deployment of the Blue Button personal health record (PHR) at the VA, and supported its implementation at CMS and the DOD’s Military Health System.
Amida has built a library of open source Blue Button and health informatics components that clinical service providers, drug and insurance companies, population health management companies, and employers can use to keep their customers, patients, caretakers, and team informed and healthy.
