The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a place for people developing things like new apps to show off their stuff. This year a company named Humetrix will be showcasing their new app iBlueButton. This app taps into your medical records that already exist through BlueButton which is a program of the U.S. government.
This is great because you will be able to see your medical records on your own device and even see a lot of the information that your medical providers see. I love technology like this because I have had a lot of my own medical issues and many times the most frustrating part of dealing with it is that you do not have access to all of your records at once. I literally carried around large binders of photocopies of medical records with me from doctor to doctor and specialist to specialist because at the time I began my journey with Thyroid Cancer, in particular, the iPhone did not exist.
