Patients can now access medical records on Medlio app
UT Physicians patients can now access their personal health records by downloading the Medlio app on their smart phone. With access to the app, patients can review their medical history from multiple providers in one securely protected location on their phone.
Users can access records such as labs, allergies, immunizations, medications, and more. Insurance benefits information, including deductibles and copays, are also available on the app. Encryption is used to protect all private patient data, along with continuous monitoring and adherence to privacy laws.
Traditionally, patients would gather and piece together their own medical history, which could be held in numerous locations. Medlio takes what could be considered a time-consuming task into something that is consumer-friendly.
“Patients having easy access to their records improves their health care experience. This app will accomplish the desire of patients to have control of their own medical history,” said Andrew Casas, chief operating officer for UT Physicians and senior vice president of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). “UT Physicians is fortunate to provide care to patients who come from around the world. With technology constantly developing and advancing, we want to ensure that we are providing them with every benefit possible.”
UT Physicians patients will first need to establish a MyUTP Patient Portal account before they can gain access to the feature within the Medlio app.
