Getting Started for PHR Providers
So you offer an online personal health record to your patients and want to offer them Blue Button, the simplest way to download personal health information. Here are some easy steps to get started:
2. Think about what data you already offer online to users. Consider starting by offering a downloadable version of just those data elements.
3. Now that you’ve thought about the data types a little bit, now it’s time to think about designing the Blue Button download capability. You’ll want to make this a simple feature and consider questions such as, “Will patients be able to Blue Button download only portions of their health record?” and “Will they be able to restrict the download by time range?”.
4. With a use model in hand, your development team can create the Blue Button download functionality and test its usability. For questions about the code, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. Now you are ready to implement! Don’t forget to display the Blue Button logo on your website in a prominent place so your users know they can simply and safely download their personal health information.
