How is syncing my data within the CommonHealth App different from viewing the data within my doctor’s patient portal?
- When using CommonHealth, clinical data from all of your health networks, hospitals and labs you have chosen to connect with – (after account verification) – will be pulled into one central place (CommonHealth) for you to securely manage and stay up-to-date with your health services.
Are my health records secure?
Yes. Your records are stored and encrypted on your device. As you sign up for CommonHealth, you will be asked to provide a 6-digit passcode or, if available, to register with your device’s Face Unlock or your fingerprint. This data is not shared with us or any other partner or vendor; it remains private within your device. This means that if you forget your passcode, that information cannot be retrieved, so please make sure to memorize it.
What happens if I get a new device?
Since your information is not stored anywhere except for your device, if you get a new device, you will need to download and set up Commonhealth again on that device.
