Blue Button

Description

Blue Button is a way for consumers and patients to get easy, secure online access to their health information offered by their doctors, insurers, pharmacies, or other health-related service. It provides patients with a highly visible, clickable button to download their health data so they can use it to improve their health and be more engaged in their health care.

This Web site provides more information about the Blue Button approach and offers guidance on how health care providers, health providers, and technology developers can get involved and implement the Blue Button.
