Kaiser Permanente has made patient access to their electronic health records available via mobile computing devices.

A new, free app for Android devices is available on the Android Market. An iPhone app will be available in coming months, but a shortcut icon can be downloaded now via the Safari browser to home screens that will take patients directly to the a mobile-optimized version of the kp.org Web site.

Patients will have mobile access to their Kaiser-populated personal health record to access diagnoses and other data, and can e-mail physicians, schedule appointments, refill prescriptions, check lab results, and search for medical facilities. Authorized family members also have access.
