My Health Application is being managed by the CARIN Alliance who is a multi-sector alliance led by distinguished risk-bearing providers, health plans, pharmaceutical companies, consumer platform companies, health IT companies, third-party applications, and consumer-advocates working collaboratively with other stakeholders in government to overcome barriers in advancing consumer-directed exchange across the U.S.
The vision of the CARIN Alliance is to rapidly advance the ability for consumers and their authorized caregivers to easily get, use, and share their digital health information when, where, and how they want to achieve their goals. Specifically, we are promoting the ability for consumers and their authorized caregivers to gain digital access to their health information via non-proprietary application programming interfaces or APIs. We envision a future where any consumer can choose any application to retrieve both their complete health record and their complete coverage information from any provider or health plan in the country in a secure manner while protecting their privacy and individual consent sharing preferences. This website helps to advance the ability for consumers to access an application of their choice based on their own individual data sharing preferences.
The CARIN Code of Conduct is a set of industry-leading best practices these applications have voluntarily adopted to protect and secure your health information.
We would strongly recommend you read the application’s privacy policies and terms and conditions to ensure you select an application that you feel would protect and secure your health data in a way that is consistent with your individual data sharing preferences.
These applications came from the CMS Blue Button 2.0 site, EHR application vendor websites, CARIN Alliance members, and other public sources. Right now, the only thing we have done is list the websites. Our initial goal is to focus on transparency and make sure the individual selecting an application knows where to go to find an application. We are also making each application’s privacy policies and terms of service readily available to the individual. Over time, we want to provide more consumer friendly ways to help individuals understand how these applications are using their data and which applications are consistent with the individual’s data sharing preferences.
