About this Use Case
Patient health information is usually stored in different computer systems and applications that do not communicate or share information with each other. This scattered information can be very difficult for patients and healthcare providers to send, receive, find, or use as the patient wishes.
Patients and healthcare providers need a better way to help find and organize their health information, and to share that information with the doctors, persons, tools or organizations that the patient prefers.
