Across the health care ecosystem, we have fragmented health data. Getting access to and making sense of all this data is challenging because the systems were never designed to talk to each other.
We want to help improve the health of every individual by creating a comprehensive story of their health, which we can start to do with UnitedHealthcare’s Individual Health Record (IHR). IHR is now available to care providers through Link,* your secure gateway to UnitedHealthcare’s self-service tools.
What is the IHR?
The IHR technology platform provides a more comprehensive digital record of a patient’s health care history. The IHR consolidates and securely stores an individual’s health data in one place, even if patients see other care providers. The patient summary may include prior treatments, procedures, conditions and prescribed medications.
IHR provides comprehensive, accurate information and tailored insights to each individual to support health collaboration across the system. IHR complements your existing population health tools and your Electronic Medical Record (EMR) by bridging the patient data gaps existing today.
How It’s Different
IHR equips your practice with information that supports your ability to have deliberate and collaborative discussions with your patients, enabling them to make better health care decisions.
Three Ways IHR Can Benefit Your Practice
IHR is available through Link, your secure gateway to UnitedHealthcare’s self-service tools. Visit UHCprovider.com/IHR for more information.
