drchrono‘s Personal Health Record platform (PHR), onpatient, is now integrating with Apple’s HealthKit, allowing patients to import data they choose from the Health app into their onpatient personal health records and easily send it to their physician.
Consumers using onpatient can sync a number of data points such as blood glucose levels, weight, heart rate, number of stairs climbed and steps walked from wearable data sources, along with other metrics from fitness apps and medical devices like glucose monitors or blood pressure cuffs.
“The problem with patient’s sharing fitness data with their doctors has been that the doctor doesn’t have enough time to wade through a lot of data”, says Daniel Kivatinos, co-founder and COO of drchrono. “We are giving patients a way to send a curated snapshot of this wellness data to their personal physicians in a way that can be digested quickly.”
Kivatinos continued adding that with this integration they are bridging the gap between a consumer’s fitness and wellness data and their provider’s medical records.
