Mobile health application developer GenieMD, Pleasanton, Calif., has won first place in the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT's Blue Button Co-Design Challenge. The purpose of the challenge was to engage developers and patients to increase the number of priority patient-facing applications able to receive clinical data via Blue Button Direct. GenieMD developed an app that helps users diagnose symptoms, find nearby providers, or learn more about medical conditions and living healthy. The secure GenieMD Health Profile includes features to create a comprehensive health summary, help manage treatment, and monitor the health of a loved one.

GenieMD users can now automatically add their medical records to their health profile using Blue Button Direct. The records from Blue Button+ are sent in a machine-readable format, allowing the app to parse the data and present it to the patient in an actionable way. The need for manual data entry is reduced and the user can combine clinical data with self-reported data to have a holistic view of their health.
