Take control of your (Medicare claims) data
Effective today, Blue Laurel members are now able to link their MyMedicare.gov and Blue Laurel accounts. This is made possible by our involvement in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Blue Button® Electronic Health Record Retrieval System.
We are very excited to offer this enhancement to our existing and new users. These medical and Rx claims bring us one (big) step closer to empowering users with their complete healthcare data.
- John Caruso, Founder of Blue Laurel
Specifically, this enhancement brings in up to 4 years of medical and Rx claim data for users who have been covered under Original Medicare. Combining this with existing Blue Laurel data sources (i.e. patient portals, health insurance, and patient-generated notes), provides users with a robust and secure collection of their healthcare data.
New users can sign for a free Blue Laurel account up by clicking the button below. Once your account is set up, navigate to the 'Insurance' tab to enable the Blue Button feature.
Blue Laurel supports the new #MyHealthEData Initiative, announced in March 2018. This program is an important step in the process of enabling patients / consumers / people to get control of their healthcare data to make more informed decisions.
In the Personal Health Record space, there will always be a balance between
- Bringing in more data and
- Simplifying the user experience.
While this new data source may seem overwhelming to users with significant claim history, Blue Laurel remains committed to providing a safe and comfortable experience for our users navigating their own healthcare journey.
We are always improving the process and looking for feedback. Sign up today and let us know how we can better serve your needs.
