Medicare Blue Button Equips Seniors with Their Med Records Everywhere They Go

Medicare Blue Button is a computer program that allows patients to download their hospital records to computers and smart devices. This technology is particularly helpful when visiting a different physician or hospital. Blue Button allows you to simply present the information stored in your device to the doctor and let him evaluate your medical history.

This innovation, which also comes with a smartphone application called iBlueButton, is currently available only from the federal government for veterans as well as Medicare beneficiaries.
