A: After you create your health summary, navigate to the orange menu at the top of the browser window and select ‘Access’ and follow the prompts to create an ‘Access Token’. A subscriber can make various Access Tokens for various people/professionals.

If you change your mind at any time about any Access Token you create, you can retract/delete the Access Token/s. You can email the Access Token to share your health summary or print it out to mail or hand out.

A subscriber can also simply present their health summary via a hand-held device.
