  • Publication number: 20180052958
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide a personal digital health portfolio system including a computer system coupled to a source of patient medical records or patient data with accessibility controlled by a secure authenticator structured for an uploader, downloader or reviewer of the patient medical records or patient data. An application programming interface (API) in data communication with a processor of the computer system can upload, download, or enable access of patient medical records or patient data stored on a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium. An interface of the source of patient medical records or patient data can read and transfer the patient medical records or patient data under control of a second entity via the API. A digital gateway is coupled to provide secure distributed access of the patient medical records or patient data stored from the non-transitory computer-readable storage medium to a doctor, pharmacy, health service, or insurance company.
