MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 2, 2017) - drchrono Inc., the provider of the Electronic Health Record (EHR), practice management, medical billing, revenue cycle management (RCM), and healthcare API platform on iPad, iPhone and web, today announced that it is the first cloud-based EHR platform enabled for Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR). With FHIR, drchrono is enabling its 10 million patients access to their data via the FHIR API through the patient health record (PHR), onpatient. The new API is designed to support the Precision Medicine Sync for Science Initiative and fulfills one of the requirements of Meaningful Use Stage 3 to enable a PHR API.
The company has been working closely with the government to develop the API which empowers patients with the right to take ownership of their medical data. drchrono's Patient API gives patients the freedom to control their own data and share the data with others throughout the continuum of care. Any developer through the personal health record FHIR API can build applications on top of drchrono so researchers and other physicians with the patient's approval can view the patient's data.
"Our country's healthcare delivery infrastructure is upgrading to take fuller advantage of the Internet to help patients access and use their health information. I applaud drchrono's leadership in launching the new patient API to offer patients the ability to connect their health data to the applications and services that can help them make better care decisions," said Aneesh Chopra, former (and first) U.S. Chief Technology Officer, and current president of CareJourney. "drchrono is answering the call by creating an open platform and API service that allows patients to have full control over their medical records and data."

"As we move into a new era of health IT, every EHR getting Meaningful Use Stage 3 certified will have to provide a patient facing API as part of the certification. We're proud to be the first cloud-based EHR to implement FHIR, enabling 10 million patients access to their data within the drchrono platform," said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-founder, drchrono. "We are always looking for ways to modernize and advance the healthcare industry and our development team worked diligently to bring a personal health record API to market. We feel it's critical that EHRs give patients the opportunity to own, manage and share their data with whomever and whenever they want."
