Blue Button on FHIR: Improving Medicare Beneficiary Access to Their Health Information
Federal agencies are working to advance consumer access, sharing, and use of health information.

The mission of the project is to enhance CMS’ current Blue Button service to provide an Application Programming Interface (API) so beneficiaries can connect their Medicare claims data to applications, services, and research programs they trust.
