- It means patients can now share health data from their iPhone with practitioners and healthcare providers.
Verizon's BlueJeans Telehealth platform has today announced support for Apple Health, letting patients share health data with practitioners and healthcare providers.
The company stated:
Patients can choose to share health data with practitioners including heart rate, sleep, ECG, step count, falls, and mobility data, directly into the BlueJeans Telehealth app on iPhone:
BlueJeans says that Health app users retain overall control of which categories they choose to share for each appointment, and that the shared data is encrypted in transit and at rest. BlueJeans says the move will help "drive better patient interactions" and improve overall patient care.
