Over six million veterans who receive health care from VA can already download their personal health data using the Blue Button. We want to be sure the 17 million veterans who receive care from non-VA doctors and hospitals can do the same.
Veterans can now expect that downloading their data will be a routine part of the care they receive from VA. We want the general public to think of Blue Button downloads as something they receive from their family doctors as a routine matter.

Moving health data should be safe, simple and inexpensive. Blue Button technology is all of those things. With Blue Button, providers can give their patients the ability to keep and control their own health data. Blue Button also enables patient-authorized sharing with other doctors, hospitals, or points of service – like pharmacies.
VA Chief Technology Officer
Giving our beneficiaries access to their own information, when they want and need it, is in perfect alignment with our vision of the Triple Aim – better care at lower costs and better health for populations. When individuals understand what their health choices are, and can see and analyze them with caregivers or family members, they become powerful members of the health care team. The Blue Button enables this ease of access, and we hope to see the tool and its use grow.
For 21 years, Iatric Systems has enabled hospitals to share pertinent medical data with patients, healthcare providers and communities. Adding Blue Button capabilities to our patient portal furthers our mission of using technology to enhance the delivery of healthcare and patient health.

CORAVault™ through Blue Button, engages individuals in their care and gives them true ownership of personal EMRs, accessible 24/7, anywhere. CORAVault mobilizes disparate EMRs in a secure and private manner not allowing patients to change data; allows BlueButton users to encrypt and protect data while carrying it on their smart phones; does not store data on its servers and makes it available only to the users.

iMedicate developed by Goli Technologies is probably the first iPad app that uses Blue Button Data file to render services. Users can upload a supported Blue Button Data file and the App parses the file and extracts the necessary information (Personal and Medication information) to help individuals in tracking and maintaining their medication adherence.

Blue Button is an incredible way for citizens to jumpstart their HealthVault record --- making it easy to share key information with providers and hundreds of HealthVault-connected applications on the web or their mobile devices. And of course, HealthVault information is always available to download with a Blue Button as well. This kind of simple exchange is exactly what the country needs to make a real impact on patient engagement, and we’re proud to be part of the solution.
