The release states that “Accessed through CVS.com or the CVS app, Health Dashboard allows people who have received their vaccinations at a CVS Pharmacy or MinuteClinic location to digitally access their vaccination information wherever and whenever they need it. If you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine at a CVS Pharmacy location, you can access our new Health Card (QR code) feature, leveraging the SMART Health Card standard. Family members will soon be able to access health records for minors, such as someone’s pharmacy records, vaccine history or information on which new vaccines you may need to receive in the future.”
The release adds that one of the Health Dashboard’s goals is to give consumers a more holistic, 360-degree view of their health. The dashboard will rollout features such as scheduling care in person or online to accessing health, vaccine and pharmacy records and lab results, care navigation, and personalized actions prompting individuals with tips and reminders for maintaining overall health.
The release concludes by saying that “Those who have received at least one vaccination at a CVS Health location can now access their personalized Health Dashboard by creating an account or logging in to an existing CVS.com account.”
