How do I maintain the privacy of my electronic health records and my own health information through the Blue Button?

To ensure that your personal health information is kept private and secure, typically only you can access the Blue Button after you have logged into your health care provider or health plan’s patient portal. Once you download your personal medical or claims information from your health care provider or health plan, we recommend that you protect that information by either securing it with a password or encrypting it.
