New functionality available to LabCorp patients through the Health app
BURLINGTON, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 29, 2018-- LabCorp® (NYSE: LH), a leading global life sciences company that is deeply integrated in guiding patient care, today announced it now supports Health Records on iPhone®. This feature will make it easy for LabCorp patients to access their LabCorp laboratory test results, along with other available medical data from multiple providers, whenever they choose.
LabCorp test results are viewable in the Apple® Health app for LabCorp patients who have a LabCorp Patient™ account and enable integration with the Health Records app. In addition to their LabCorp test results, patients will have information from participating healthcare institutions organized into one view, covering allergies, medical conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals. Patients will receive notifications when their data is updated. Health Records data is encrypted and protected with the user’s iPhone passcode, Touch ID or Face ID.
“Our strategy to support the increasingly engaged healthcare consumer is a critical part of our mission to improve health and improve lives,” said David P. King, chairman and CEO of LabCorp. “LabCorp on Health Records will help provide healthcare consumers with a more holistic view of their health. Laboratory test results are central to medical decision making, and broadening access to this information will help patients take charge of their health and wellness, and lead to more informed dialogues between patients and their healthcare providers.”
