Mobile Health Information Exchange™ & Blue Button® Applications
Today’s fragmented health care environment, with a persistent lack of interoperability between provider facing health IT systems, can benefit from user-friendly and easily deployable patient facing mobile health information exchange (HIE) solutions for immediate and secure patient-controlled access and exchange of key individual health information anytime and anywhere.
Capitalizing on the power of mobile computing and the Internet, Humetrix offers its Mobile Health Information Exchange (HIE) ™ applications for immediate, patient-controlled, provider and patient access and exchange of electronic health records (EHRs).
The Humetrix Mobile HIE applications derive from Humetrix’ 15-year HIT development experience and Humetrix’ core technology for automated and secure access to individual on-line records using handheld mobile devices, such as smart phones, tablets, USB flash drives or smart cards. Patient-centered by design, Humetrix mobile applications also provide for ultimate patient control and individual privacy protection.
Humetrix Mobile Health HIE solutions are simple and intuitive to use as native phone apps or other mobile device based applications. With Humetrix mobile HIE solutions, users can automatically access online EHRs, downloaded them onto their mobile devices and share these EHRs at the point of care from the patient’s device to the provider’s mobile device, under the patient's direct control.
Humetrix mobile health technology optimizes the use of Blue Button® enabled websites whether Federal government patient portals (MyHealtheVet, MyMedicare.gov and TRICARE Online) or newly launched commercial portals (such as the RelayHealth or Aetna portals) for patient and provider easy and secure access and exchange of patient clinical summaries, under the patient's direct control. In the patient’s hands, the Humetrix powered mobile device becomes an automated pointer and authentication tool for immediate and secure access to up to date patient information at any point of care. Easy, direct and secure access to web accessible health records by informed citizens in control of their own health care, with the ability to share and exchange their health information with their physicians wherever they receive care, is indeed what the Blue Button strategy is all about.
Furthermore, Humetrix mobile applications have implemented the Blue Button+ standards to allow patients to receive onto their mobile devices EHRs transmitted to them by providers using Meaningful Use (MU) – Stage 2 certified EMR systems.
Humetrix Mobile HIE mobile applications are offered to public and private payers, provider systems and HIT vendors and directly to consumers through the iTunes and GooglePlay stores.
Humetrix Mobile HIE solutions are:

ICEBlueButton uniquely creates a personal QR (Quick Response) code which can be stored on the smart phone lock screen, be printed and placed on a child’s bicycle helmet or an elderly patient’s refrigerator door. A bystander or Emergency Personnel attending to the emergency can then scan the ICEBlueButton QR code and immediately retrieve the app user’s ICE record. Learn More
