The patent application (Publication Number: US20240038404A1) describes a method that involves a remote server receiving patient-related data from multiple medical practices treating the same patient. The server then reviews requirements for accessing this information and automatically forwards the data to the relevant medical practice once these requirements are met. This process aims to streamline the sharing of patient data between different medical entities.

The method outlined in the patent application includes steps such as comparing sharing keys provided by different medical practices, storing patient data in different locations on the server, and granting access to this data based on authorization from the patient or the medical practices involved. By facilitating the secure exchange of patient information between legally unaffiliated medical practices, this method seeks to improve coordination of care and ensure that all relevant healthcare providers have access to up-to-date and comprehensive patient data. Additionally, the system allows for bidirectional data sharing, with patient data being automatically forwarded to the original medical practice as well. Overall, this innovation has the potential to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare delivery by enabling seamless data sharing while maintaining data security and patient privacy.
