Blue Button®

BlueButtonIn 2010, President Obama introduced a new health information technology named Blue Button, developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The federal government’s Blue Button Initiative provides patients and physicians with the ability to upload and download and easily exchange and review personal health records (PHR) available online on Blue Button-enabled portals.

A new page, Blue Button, has been added to this weblog along with three iBlueButton mobile apps which will begin to enable patients and physicians to use this new technology.

Stay tuned for more about Blue Button,  related apps and tools, and PHRs in near future.
