Patients whose physicians use Cerner electronic health records will now be able to load clinical, fitness, wellness, and nutritional data into their patient portal through an agreement Cerner has reached with Durham, N.C.-based Validic.

Validic is the developer of a cloud-based digital health platform providing access to patient data from in-home clinical devices, wearables, and patient healthcare applications. Using Validic's digital health platform, Cerner will be able to integrate clinical, fitness, wellness and nutritional data into the patient's personal health portal, HealtheLife.

With the patient's consent, that information will be sent to their electronic medical record, giving nurses and physicians visibility to their health on a daily basis.

"This access to actionable, patient-generated data continues Cerner's focus and commitment to offering a suite of solutions that support personalized healthcare and enables individuals and populations to improve their overall health," Validic executives said in announcing the deal.
