Health and Human Services has released a new guide on how to get and use your health record information. Be sure to check out the HIPAA quiz at the bottom of the page. https://www.healthit.gov/how-to-get-your-health-record/
Interesting article attributing patient identification problems to interoperability and integration. Too true. In Alaska we used an MDM solution from #Visionware to reconcile client identifiers across multiple systems in Health and Social Services. This allowed staff to impact social determinants of health #SDOH. A real game changer.
Here’s a great explanation of API usage in healthcare.
Very interesting report on the link between an individual’s microbiome and their mental health. Well worth the read.

Alaska veterans who receive care from providers who are members of the Alaska statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE), Alaska eHealth Network did you know that you can ask hour provider to send your record of care to your iBlueButton app on your smartphone? The iBlueButton app also can receive your health record from the VA and combine them to give you a complete picture that you can share with other providers locally or when travelling.
Here is an article I really enjoyed.
Veterans have the ability to download their health data to several Personal Health Records. Both the Humetrix iBlueButton application and the Microsoft HealthVault web site are free to veterans and have the ability to consume health data from the MyHealtheVet web site and allow the veteran to share it with other healthcare providers or caregivers.
